A charge Q = -10-6 C is moving at a speed of 10,000 m/s through a magnetic field. If the field B = 3 Tesla, what is the largest possible magnetic force on the charge?

Par is right, unless I'm missing something; firebird, you misread the problem (which was easy to do): it was 10^(-6) coulombs. Remember, a Coulomb is a lot of charge.

The charge was given as negative, so either use left hand rule or switch the RHR answer once your done, whichever you promise to remember unfailingly.
