Force on moving charge on a magnetic field (Lorentz Force)
Consider a charged particle or charge =q is moving with velocity v on a magnatic field B can experience magnatic force FM. If the direction of magnatic field is represented by Y-axis, velocity of charged particle is along XY plane making angle θ with direction of magnatic field (B), then the direction of magnetic force is represented by Z-axis.
directly proportional to the sine of angle between v and B i.e
This is the expression for Lorentz magnetic force where FM is perpendicular to the plane of v and B
