# Laboratory scientists have created the electric and magnetic fields shown in FIGURE EX31.3. These fields are also seen by scientists who zoom past in a rocket traveling in the x-direction at . According to the rocket scientists, what angle does the electric field make with the axis of the rocket?

Angle according to the rocket scientists is above the x-axis.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Given information

We have given,

Magnetic field (along positive z-axis).

Electric field has two components,

(along positive x and y axis)

Velocity of the rocket .

We need to find the angle made by electric field with the axis of the rocket.

## Step 2: Simplify.

In the frame of rocket scientist the electric field due to movement of rocket in the magnetic field will also be considered.

So, new electric field is:

For find the angle with the x-axis:

This angle is above positive x-axis.
