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:
