Magnitude of force

(Refer to attached picture file)

An electron moving 6.00x105 m/s in the x-z plane at an angle of 60o as shown is at the origin of a Cartesian coordinate system. The magnetic field B is 2.00 T in the positive x direction. Find the magnitude of the force on the electron and state its direction in reference to the x, y, and z axes.
