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?
