A beam of protons is accelerated through a potential difference of 1.5 kV and then enters a uniform magnetic field traveling perpendicular to the field.

Since v = v^ and B = B^, the right had rule gives F = F(-^). the proton will be x z y experiencing a downward force resulting in a clockwise trajectory (b) What magnitude of field is needed to bend these protons in a circular arc of diameter 3.0 m mp v 2 Bp qv = R mp v Bp = qR To obtain the velocity of the proton one uses energy conservation so that 1 mp v 2 = qV 2 v= 2qV = 53.61 104 m/s. mp (1) (2) Substituting this value of v in Eqn. 2, we get Bp = 37.3 10-4 T. (c) What magnetic field would be needed to produce a path with the same diameter if the particles were electrons having the same speed as the protons? From Eqn. 2 it follows that the magnetic field for an electron mp v me me v = = Bp /1834 T = 0.029 10-4 T Be = qR qR mp (d) If the strength of the magnetic field were increased three times that you obtain in part (b), what would be the diameter of the circular path ? From Eqn. 2 it follows that one needs to increase the field 3 times to have the radius shortened to 1/3 rd of its original value. ...
