Unformatted text preview: the same magnitude of force as an alpha particle (charge +2e) which is also traveling perpendicular to the same field. Find the ratio of their speeds: V-proton/V-alpha. (3 points) Answer: Both particles travel perpendicular to the uniform magnetic field. The magnetic force is: F=QVB Both experience the same magnitude of force: e*V-proton*B = 2e*V-alpha*B The ratio of their speeds is: V-proton/V-alpha = 2...
