## Lorentz Force: How to Determine its Direction and Understand Formula

Learn how Lorentz force (magnetic force) deflects a moving charge (electron) in the magnetic field and how you can determine the direction of the deflection.

In this video you will learn how to determine the direction of the Lorentz force using left/right hand rule and how this force is calculated and related to the centripetal force.

Explanation of what the Hall effect is, how exactly the Hall voltage is generated and how you can calculate it and the Hall constant.

Learn what the Hall effect is, how the Hall voltage is generated in a current-carrying bar in a magnetic field, and how this voltage is derived.
