A particle of mass m and charge q moves in the field of a magnetic monopole. This field is given by B = b r /r 3 , where b is a constant. Assume that the mass m never gets to r = 0. Apart from the Lorentz force, there are no other forces on the mass m. For the first 6 parts, do not use the Lagrangian method. Simply use Newton’s Equations in the original form. 1. Prove directly from Newton’s Equations that the kinetic energy, T = (1/2)mv 2 , is a constant of the motion. 2.
