Formula:`F = q(v × B)`

## Introduction to Lorentz Force Calculator

The Lorentz force is the force on a point charge due to electromagnetic fields. The formula for calculating the Lorentz force F involves the charge q, the velocity of the charge v, and the magnetic field B. The force is given by the product of these quantities, assuming the velocity and magnetic field are perpendicular to each other. This simplifies the cross product into a multiplication for this calculator.

## Parameter usage:

• `charge` = The electric charge
• `velocity` = Velocity of the charge
• `magneticField` = Magnitude of the magnetic field

## Example valid values:

• `charge` = 1.5 C (Coulombs)
• `velocity` = 200 m/s
• `magneticField` = 300 Tesla

## Output:

• `force` = Resulting Lorentz force measured in Newtons

## Data validation

Charge, velocity, and magnetic field should be non-zero for meaningful results. Negative values represent direction, but are mathematically valid.

## Summary

This calculator is designed to provide the Lorentz force acting on a charge moving in a uniform magnetic field, assuming a perpendicular orientation between the charge’s velocity and the magnetic field.
