Copying will not be tolerated. 1. A particle with charge 5.20 nC is moving in a uniform magnetic field B = -(1.55 T) j . The magnetic force on the particle is F = -(3.80 x 10 -7 N) i + (6.50 x 10 -7 N) k . a) One component of the particle’s velocity v cannot be determined from the information given. Which component is that? Explain your answer. b) Calculate the other two components of the particle’s velocity. c) Calculate the dot product v_F . (Note, you can do this, even though you do not know one of the components of v . Why?) 2. An atom of 9 Be is ionized by removing one of its atomic electrons. The resulting ion is

    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.
