Short Answer

Determine the magnetic field direction that causes the charged particles shown in FIGURE to experience the indicated magnetic force.

(a) The magnetic field mustbe in the plane of the page, clockwise from straight up.

(b) The magnetic field must be in the plane of the page, clockwise from straight up.

Step by Step Solution

Step1: Introduction 

The area around over a magnetic entity or a current-carrying body where magnetic forces as a result of the body or current will be observed.

Step2: Force getting a magnetic flux (part a)

The force on a electric charge is with in the other way because the right-hand rule indicates. Since the force is out of the page and therefore the velocity of the electric charge is to the left and within the plane of the paper, the magnetic field must be within the plane of the paper, clockwise from straight up.

Step3: Field on charge (part b)

The Flux on the charge is within the plane of the page, counterclockwise from straight down.
