An electron is accelerated from rest through a potential difference of 10 6 volts (1 Megavolt) from a metal cathode to a metal anode. (a) Find it’s speed at the anode (expressed as a fraction of the velocity of light c) (b) Obtain its momentum when it reaches the anode in units of MeV/c (c) If the electron is then subjected to a magnetic field B of 0.01 Tesla

Find the radius of the orbit. 15 pts. 2. -------------------------0 M 2 MeV/c A particle of mass M is traveling to the right as shown in the figure with momentum 2 MeV/c and decays into a particle of mass 1 MeV/c 2 which travels up at right angles to the path of the initial particle with momentum 0.5 MeV/c and a massless neutrino which travels downwards at an angle as shown. Calculate (a) the energy carried by the neutrino (b) the mass M of the original particle in MeV/c 2 10 pts...
