Solutions to Quiz 8 Phys. 2306 F09 You may use your text book, notes, and a calculator. A particle with negative charge - q and mass m = 2 . 00 × 10 - 15 kg is traveling at t = 0 with ( v x , v y , v z ) = 1 . 00 × 10 6 ( - 3 , 4 , 5) m/s , at position ( x, y, z ) = ( a, 0 , 0) m. At all times it travels in a region of constant magnetic field, ( B x , B y , B z ) = (0 , 0 , - 0 . 100) T. 1) If at t=0, the magnitude of the force on the particle is 1.00 N, what is q in 10 - 6 C? a) 0.500 b) 1.00 c) 2.00 d) 5.00 e) none of these F = q v × B , = q (1 . 00 × 10 6 )(0 . 100)( - 3 i + 4 j + 5 k ) × - k , = q (1 . 00 × 10 5 )( - 3 j - 4 i ) , F = q (5 . 00 × 10 5 ) = 1 . 00 , q = 2 . 00 × 10 - 6 C. ( c ) 2) At some arbitrary later time the magnitude of the force a) increases b) decreases c) is the same d) could increase or decrease e) insuffi- cient information F · v = 0 , thus | v | is unchanged and since F B, F z = 0 , v z is constant. So | F | is constant, (c)
