Unformatted text preview: Y = yv x / with = qB/mc . Hint: the arguments of f are all constants of motion. What are X and Y ? 3. A cylindrically symmetric plasma has a distribution function f given in terms of the energy H and canonical angular momentum P = r ( mv + qA /c ), which are the particle constants of motion, f ( r, v ) = n (2 T/m ) 3 / 2 exp (HP T ) , (2) where n , and T are constants. The vector potential A ( r ) produces a uniform magnetic eld. Find expressions for the density and rotation rate as a function of r ....
