# Lorentz Force Calculation

**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

**, the velocity of the charge**

*q***, and the magnetic field**

*v***. 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.**

*B*## 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.
