Physics 21 Fall 2007 Solution to HW-10 Electromagnetic velocity filter An ion source sends particles with velocity v along the + x axis. The particles encounter plates a distance d apart that generate a uniform electric field E in the + y direction. (A) A magnetic field in what direction will generate a force that cancels the electric force? (B) Find the magnitude of the magnetic field that will cancel the electric force. (C) How should you choose q and m to obtain the best possible velocity resolution? You want particles with the incorrect velocity to have the maximum possible deflection so that they will not go through the slit. The deviation will be maximum when the acceleration is a maximum. Since F=ma , and F=qE , a is max when F/m = qE/m is max. So for q/m as large as possible, make q large and m small. 27.1 A particle with charge - q moves with instantaneous velocity v = v x i + v y j . (A) What is the force exerted on this particle by a magnetic field B = B i ? Find the x component. (B) Find the y component. (C) Find the z component. (D) What is the force

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
