# Magnetic Force on Airplane#

Aircrafts sometimes acquire small static charges. Suppose a supersonic jet has a 0.976 $$\rm\ {\mu C}$$ charge and flies due west at a speed of 548 $$\textrm{ m/s}$$ over Earths south magnetic pole, where the $$\mathrm{8 \times 10^{-5}} \textrm{ T}$$ magnetic field points straight down into the ground.
