PHY2049: Chapter 28 1 Magnetic Field and Work Î Magnetic force is always perpendicular to velocity ± Therefore B field does no work! ± Why? Because Î Consequences ± Kinetic energy does not change ± Speed does not change ± Only direction changes ± Particle moves in a circle (if ) ( ) 0 KF xF v t =⋅ =⋅∆ = r r r r vB r r

What path will q follow? ± Force is always velocity and B ± Path will be a circle. F is the centripetal force needed to keep the charge in its circular orbit. Let’s calculate radius R F F v R v B q F v
