T. Determine the
radius of the path?
1.19
2. Suppose that the target is located at the coordinates
x
=
0.12
m and
y
=
0.12
m. In
addition, suppose that the particle is a proton and the magnetic field has a magnitude of
0.012
T. The speed at which the particle is projected is the same for either of the two
paths leading to the target. Find the speed.

3. A wire carries a current of 0.66 A. This wire makes an angle of 58° with respect to a
magnetic field of magnitude

4. Two insulated wires, each
2.10
m long, are taped together to form a twowire unit that
is
2.10
m long. One wire carries a current of 7.00 A; the other carries a smaller current
