Unformatted text preview: o solve this problem? (A) Lorentz Force Law (B) E field definition (C) V definition r r rr BB ( F = qv × B + qE ) (D) Conservation of Energy/Newton’s Laws (E) All of the above – Absolutely ! We need to use the definitions of V and E and either conservation of energy or Newton’s Laws to understand the motion of the particle before it enters the B field. – We need to use the Lorentz Force Law (and Newton’s Laws) to determine what happens in the magnetic field. Calculation Calculation A particle of charge q and mass m is accelerated from rest by an electric field E through a distance d and enters and exits a region containing a constant magnetic field B at the points shown. q,m Assume q,m,E,d, and x0 are known. exits here XXXXXXXXX X X X X X X X X X x0 XXXXXXXXX d XXXXXXXXX enters here B B What is B? • Strategic Analysis – – – x0/2 E Calculate v, the velocity of the particle as it enters the magnetic field Use Lorentz Force equation to determine the path in the field as a function of B Apply the entrance­exit information to determine B Let’s Do It !! Calculation Calculation A particle of charge q and mass m is accelerated from rest by an electric field E through a distance d and enters and exits a region containing a constant magnetic field B at the points shown. q,m Assume q,m,E,d, and x0 are known. exits h...
