physics help ?
A +2 µC particle is travelling due west and enters a magnetic field. Because of the magnetic field the proton curves downward. Which direction does the magnetic field point?

The direction of the force is determined by v x B (v cross B).
west x north = down
by the right hand rule (positively charged particle)
Hope this helps!
