Magnetic Fields and Electric Current Name: Jordon Weber Date: 4/5/10 Name: ____________________________ Lab Sect: 02 Name: ____________________________ Lab Instructor: ______________________ Lab Activity 1: Measuring the charge-to-mass ratio for electrons Accelerating voltage V : 200 V Q1. Why do the electrons follow a circular path when current flows through the Helmholtz coil? The helmoltz coil exerts a force on the electrons in the form of magnetic field (either into or out of the box). This magnetic field creates a force perpendicular to the field and the velocity of the electrons making them arc into a circle. Q2. Record (in the table below) the current I through the Helmholtz coils and the diameter d of the circular electron path. Make sure that you convert the diameter into meters. Repeat this procedure for 10 different pairs of the current I and the diameter d . Coil current I (A) Circle diameter d (m) 2 0.060 1.9 0.065 1.8 0.0675 1.6 0.075 1.5 0.08 1.4 0.085 1.3 0.0925 1.2 0.10 1.1 0.11 1.0 0.115 After you’ve taken all your data, switch off everything: first turn the Helmholtz current control knob on the e / m apparatus all the way up and then turn down the current to zero

using the knob on the power supply. After this, turn down the voltage to zero. Finally, you can switch off the power supply.

### 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.
