# Lorentz force

Jump to navigation Jump to search

In pheesics, pairteecularly in electromagnetism, the Lorentz force is the combination o electric an magnetic force on a pynt charge due tae electromagnetic fields. If a pairticle o charge q muives wi velocity v in the presence o an electric field E an a magnetic field B, then it will experience a force

${\displaystyle \mathbf {F} =q\mathbf {E} +q\mathbf {v} \times \mathbf {B} }$

(in SI units).
