Physics 263 Mohand Shalaby Experiment – 4 Electron Charge-to-Mass Ratio 1. Introduction: In this experiment we are looking at the ratio of charge to mass of an electron em . A beam of electrons is accelerated by a potential difference and bent into a circular path by a magnetic field. The radius of the path is measured by the eye. We know the values of the electron’s charge and mass to be: e = 1.602x10 - 19 , m = 9.109x10 -31 . So em =1.7587 * 1011 For the magnetic field B we used the equation: B = 7.80x10 -4 I To verify this in our experiment we used the formula: em = 2VB 2 R 2 2. Apparatus: For this experiment we used the apparatus shown in Fig1:

### 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.
