Question

A beam of electrons is accelerated through a potential difference of 7.0 kV before entering a velocity selector. If the B-field of the velocity selector is perpendicular to the velocity and has a value of 0.04 T, what value of the E-field is required (in the magnetic field region) if the particles are to be undeflected?

Given Information:Potential difference = V = 7 kV

Magnetic field = B = 0.04 T

Required Information:Electric Field = E = ?

Answer:Electric Field = 1.98×10⁶ V/m

Step-by-step explanation:The required Electric field can be found using

E = vB

Where v is the velocity of electron beam and B is the magnetic field

But first we need to calculate the velocity

V = E/q

E = Vq

Where V is the potential difference and q is the charge 1.60×10⁻¹⁹ C

E = 7×10³*1.60×10⁻¹⁹

E = 11.2×10⁻¹⁶ J

As we know

E = ½mv²

Where m is the mass of electron 9.11×10⁻³¹ kg

v = √2E/m

v = √2*11.2×10⁻¹⁶/9.11×10⁻³¹

v = 4.958×10⁷ m/s

Finally we can now calculate the Electric field

E = vB

E = 4.958×10⁷*0.04

E = 1.98×10⁶ V/m

Therefore, an electric field of

1.98×10⁶ V/mis required if the particles are to be undeflected.Explanation:
