Negativ geladener Ladungsträger (z.B. ein Elektron) bewegt sich durch ein homogenes Magnetfeld \(B\) eines Hufeisenmagneten und zwar unter einem beliebigen Winkel \(\alpha\) zwischen der Geschwindigkeit \(v\) und den magnetischen Feldlinien. Negatively charged charge carrier (e.g. an electron) moves through a homogeneous magnetic field \(B\) of a horseshoe magnet with an arbitrary angle \(\alpha\) between the direction of velocity vector \(v\) and the magnetic field lines.

Furthermore, in this sketch, the velocity vector \(v\) has been decomposed into a \(v_\perp\) velocity component perpendicular to the magnetic field and a parallel \(v_{||}\) velocity component.
