when does a moving charge experience maximum force and when does it experience minimum force?

Expert Answer:

Since the force on the particle is equal to the cross product of velocity and magnetic field, so the force will be maximum when the motion will be in a direction perpendicular to the magnetic field and the force will be zero when the motion will be along the direction of the magnetic field or opposite to it. (as in both case the cross product will be zero).
