Hin t 1. F orces acting on electron
There are no forc es ac ting on the elec tron; henc e it will travel in a s traight line with c ons tant
veloc ity . Hin t 2. T wo-dimensional kinematics
The ratio of the veloc ity c omponents , , is equal to the ratio of the dis tanc es the elec tron travels in the x and the y direc tions until it hits the s c reen, . Solve this equation for . ANSW ER:
= Correct Par t B
Now s uppos e , and another elec tron is projec ted in the s ame manner. W hic h of the following is the mos t ac c urate qualitative des c ription of the elec tron's motion onc e it enters the region of nonz ero
The elec tron dec elerates before c oming to a halt and turning around while alway s moving
along a s traight line.
The elec tron's motion will be unaffec ted. (It will c ontinue moving in a s traight line with the

The elec tron moves in a c irc le in the xy plane.
The elec tron moves along a helic al path about an ax is parallel to the field lines with c ons tant
radius and c ons tant veloc ity in the x direc tion. Correct Par t C
The motion of the elec tron c an be brok en down into two parts : 1. c ons tant motion in the...
