in reply to (way)(OT): Lorentz Force worked numerical example.

Does this help: http://www.tutorvista.com/content/physics/physics-iv/moving-charges-magnetism/lorentz-force.php.

Update: Sorry, I misread one of the symbols. The conclusion is that the force is L*(I cross B) where L is the length of the wire segment, I is the current vector and B is the magnetic field vector.

The assumption is that the magnetic field is constant over the length of the wire segment.

Here's another explanation of the same experiment: http://www.nikhef.nl/~h73/kn1c/praktikum/phywe/LEP/Experim/4_1_06.pdf with the same formula.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[choroba]: Good morning!
[Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend!
[marto]: jetlag has really done a number on the kids, it's been a tough week
choroba played with the band on Saturday, so Sunday was very sleepy
[choroba]: managed to release Syntax::Construct with 5.28 support in the night, though
[Corion]: choroba: Whee ;)
[Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
[marto]: well, their mother let them sleep till 15:00 & 12:00 last week, which didn't help them adjust :P
[Corion]: I was "productive" over the weekend in the sense that I revived my old "Perlmonks on SQLite" code, which likely means I can get a test instance back up running on my webhost. Small steps :)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
