Unformatted text preview: Charged Particles in Electric Charged Particles in Electric and and Magnetic Fields Magnetic Fields • Motion of charged particles • Lorentz Force • Examples: cyclotron, mass spectrometer Recall: Recall: In general: “Lorentz Force” E q F = E q B v q F + × = in a magnetic field B v q F × = in an electric field Magnetic Fields: Magnetic Fields: F F = = q q v v × × B B q x x x x x x x x v v F F + The force is perpendicular to the velocity (and path), so: • no work is done by B • kinetic energy is constant • speed is constant Only the direction of the motion changes due to the magnetic force. B B 1) Uniform 1) Uniform B B , , v v perpendicular to perpendicular to B B + q v x x x x x x x x Motion is a circle . F Magnetic force ( ⊥ v ) is F m = qvB (constant) But F c = mv 2 /r , so the radius of circle is : mv r qB = r Example: Example: A proton is moving in a circular orbit of radius 14cm in a...
