How to Calculate and Solve for Magnetic Force | Nickzom Calculator

The image above represents magnetic force.

To compute the magnetic force of a field, four essential parameters are needed and the parameters are Quantity of Charge (q), Average Velocity of the Charge (v), Magnetic Field Induction or Magnetic Flux Density (B) and Angle between v and B (θ).

The formula for calculating the magnetic force:

F = qVBsinθ

Where;
F = Magnetic Force
q = Quantity of Charge
v = Average Velocity of the Charge
B = Magnetic Field Induction or Magnetic Flux Density
θ = Angle between v and B

Let’s solve an example;
Find the magnetic force of a field when the Quantity of Charge (q) is 11, Average Velocity of the Charge (v) is 20, Magnetic Field Induction or Magnetic Flux Density (B) is 17 and Angle between v and B (θ) is 28°.

This implies that;
q = Quantity of Charge = 11
v = Average Velocity of the Charge = 20
B = Magnetic Field Induction or Magnetic Flux Density = 17
θ = Angle between v and B = 28°

F = qVBsinθ
F = 11 x 20 x 17 x sin28°
F = 11 x 20 x 17 x 0.469
F = 1755.82

Therefore, the magnetic force is 1755.82 Newton (N).
