Describe its resulting path (both magnitude and direction). Answer First, you must define a coordinate system. Let’s say the original direction of motion of the electron as the positive x-direction. B field v- Step 2 Answer This means that the electron will eventually be moving ownward in the magnetic field. X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X B field v- Now, which direction will it feel a force? Via RHR1, it will feel a orce to the left (don’t orget to flip the vector at he end). This will keep on occurring until it completes one circular loop (and then it keeps repeating). So, the resulting path will be circular (clockwise) as the agnetic force causes centripetal acceleration. Step 2 Answer To find the magnitude, use Newton’s 2nd Law with the agnetic field causing a centripetal acceleration. e know all of the variables (e and m e can be looked up).

This spiral path is called a elix....
