Class XII problem

a proton is placed in a uniform electric field directed along positive x axis .in which direction will it tend to move?


As the proton is at rest, v=0
From Lorentz's equation,
F = q(v x b) = 0 (As v=0)
Thus, no force is experienced by the proton.
So, it will not tend to move in any direction.
