aldawsari (ma28683) – HW10 – Betancourt – (16856) 1 This print-out should have 12 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 27.1-27.8 001 10.0 points A charged particle is projected with its initial velocity parallel to a uniform magnetic field. What is the resulting path? 1. straight line perpendicular to the field. 2. circular arc. 3. straight line parallel to the field. correct 4. spiral. 5. parabolic arc. Explanation: The force on a moving charge due to a magnetic field is given by vector F = qvectorv × vector B . If vectorv and vector B are parallel, then vectorv × vector B = 0 . Hence the force on the particle is zero, and the particle continues to move in a straight line parallel to the field. 002 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points The magnetic field over a certain range is given by vector B = B x ˆ ı + B y ˆ , where B x = 8 T and B y = 5 T. An electron moves into the field with a velocity vectorv = v x ˆ ı + v y ˆ + v z ˆ k , where v x = 8 m / s, v y = 3 m / s and v z = 6 m / s. The charge on the electron is 1 . 602 × 10 - 19 C. What is the ˆ ı component of the force ex- erted on the electron by the magnetic field? Correct answer: 4 . 806 × 10 - 18 N. Explanation: Let : v x = 8 m / s , v y = 3 m / s , v z = 6 m / s , q = 1 . 602 × 10 - 19 C , B x = 8 T , and B y = 5 T .

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.
