If a charged particle moves in a straight line through some region of space, can you say that the magnetic field in that region is necessarily zero?
Step 1 of 3
No, it can occur that both electric and magnetic forces exit is the same region and they cancel the effect of each other ie qE = . And so the particle can move in a straight line as there is not net external force.
