## An electron and a second particle both move in circles perpendicular to a uniformmagnetic field. The mass of the second particle is the same

Question

An electron and a second particle both move in circles perpendicular to a uniformmagnetic field. The mass of the second particle is the same as that of a proton but thecharge of this particle is different from that of a proton. If both particlestakethesameamount of time to go once around their respective circles, determine the charge of thissecond particle. You may use the values:melectron9.1110−31kg,qelectron1.6010−19C, andmproton1.6710−27kg.

The change on the second particle is .

Explanation:

The period of revolution of the particle in the magnetic field is given by the formula as follows : It is given that the magnetic field is uniform. The mass of the second particle is the same as that of a proton but thecharge of this particle is different from that of a proton. If both particles take the same amount of time to go once around their respective circles. So, So, the change on the second particle is .
