Cosmic Ray Proton#

Question Text#

A cosmic ray proton moving toward Earth at \({{params.v}} \times 10^7 \textrm{ m\s}\) experiences a magnetic force of \({{params.F}} \times 10^{-16} \textrm{ N}\). What is the strength of the magnetic field if there is a \({{params.theta}} ^{\circ}\) angle between it and the velocity of the proton?
