~ 2 ~ I. Objective : In this experiment we will measure the ratio of charge to mass of an electron by viewing the path of the electrons directly. By measuring the radius of the beam directly as well as the voltage is uses to accelerate, and knowing the Magnetic field, we will be able to determine the electrons charge to mass ratio. Method : 1. First we set the equipment up as stated in the handout. We made sure all the power supplies were switched off and that the dials were to their lowest settings for safety reasons. The heater power supply was set to 6 volts and the toggle switch was in the e/m Measure position. 2. Next we doubled checked that our equipment was set up according to the diagram in the lab handout. 3. When we were ready to start, 1 of us adjusted the current knob for the Helmholtz coil and we watched it arch around into a circle. The circle was checked to make
