Some of these ions pass through the left slit and enter “Region I” in which there is a vertical uniform electric field (in the − ˆ direction) and a 0 . 1 T uniform mag- netic field (aligned with the ± ˆ k-direction) as shown in the figure by the shaded area. q m Region of Magnetic Field . 1 T +1000 V 1 . 2 cm x y z 2 8 c m Region I Region II Figure: ˆ ı is in the direction + x (to the right), ˆ is in the direction + y (up the page), and ˆ k is in the direction + z (out of the page). In which direction (relative to the co- ordinate system shown above) should the magnetic field point in order for negatively charged ions to move along the path shown by the dotted line in the diagram above? 1. bardbl vector B bardbl = 0 ; direction undetermined 2. vector B bardbl vector B bardbl = + ˆ k 3. vector B bardbl vector B bardbl = − ˆ k correct Explanation: To obtain a straight orbit, the upward and downward forces need to cancel. The force on a charged particle is vector F = vector F E + vector F B = q ( vector E + vectorv × vector B ) . For the force to be zero, we need vector F E + vector F B = 0 , or vector F E = − vector F B . Therefore, the forces are equal and opposite and the magnitude of forces are equal; i.e. , bardbl vector F E bardbl = bardbl vector F B bardbl . The force due to the magnetic field provides the centripetal force that causes the positive ions to move in the semicircle. As the negatively charged ion exits the re- gion of the electric field, vector F B = q vectorv × vector B , so by the right-hand rule the magnetic field must point out of the page parenleftBig or in the − z-direction...
