$2.0\times10^{-14}T$, left looking in the direction of the velocity.

Work Step by Step

To cancel the effect of gravity magnetic field should be in upward direction. So, magnetic field should be directed into the page or left looking in the direction of velocity. $F=qvB=mg$ Thus, $B=\frac{1.672\times10^{-27}\times10}{1.6\times10^{-19}\times5\times10^{6}}=2.0\times10^{-14}T$
