Two point charges, with charges and , are each
moving with speed toward the origin. At the instant
shown is at position (0, ) and is at ( , 0).
(Note that the signs of the charges are not given
because they are not needed to determine the
magnitude of the forces between the charges.)

Hint B.4Computing the force

Hint not displayed

Express the magnitude of the magnetic force in terms of , , , , and .

ANSWER:

=

Correct

Part C

Assuming that the charges are moving nonrelativistically (

), what can you say about the relationship

between the magnitudes of the magnetic and electrostatic forces?

Hint C.1How to approach the problem

Hint not displayed

ANSWER:

The magnitude of the magnetic force is greater than the magnitude of the
electric force.
The magnitude of the electric force is greater than the magnitude of the
magnetic force.
Both forces have the same magnitude.

Correct

This result holds quite generally: Magnetic forces between moving charges are much smaller than
electric forces as long as the speeds of the charges are nonrelativistic.
