    I jut sat the Physics theory exam for Cambridge IGCSE and for one of the questions, you had to write the deceleration of an object. I put a -100. 100 is the right answer but I don't know if my negative sign is correct. Is this correct? should I have just put +100 since the question said write the deceleration?

    I said the direction of the magnetic field was to the right, and the direction of the force was upwards
