Lorentz Force – definition, formula

In this post, we will study the definition and formula of Lorentz force.

Lorentz force – definition

Lorentz Force: When a charge q moving with velocity v enters a region where both magnetic field and electric field exist, both fields exert a force on it. This combined force on the charge is called Lorentz force.

Lorentz force formula

Lorentz Force F = q (E + vxB)

Here, q = charge, v =velocity of the charge, E = Electric field, and B = Magnetic field

Know more about the magnetic force component of Lorentz force here.

Also, know about electrostatic force in detail.
