Magnetic Field F B = q v x B ± Consider a particle moving in an external magnetic field with its velocity perpendicular to the field ± The force is always directed toward the center of the circular path ± The magnetic force causes a centripetal acceleration, changing the direction of the velocity of the particle
Force on a Charged Particle ± Equating the magnetic and centripetal forces: ± Solving for r : ± r is proportional to the momentum of the particle and inversely proportional to the magnetic field 2 B mv Fq v B r == mv r qB =

Motion of Charged Particle ± The angular speed of the particle is ± The angular speed, ω , is also referred to as the cyclotron frequency ± The period of the motion is vq B ω rm == 222 π r ππ m T v ω qB ===
Motion of a Particle, General ± If a charged particle moves in a magnetic field at some arbitrary angle θ with respect to B ± V = V x i + V y j + V z k 22 y z vvv =+ v x = V cos θ = sin θ V θ x
