Solution Summary

Detailed step-by-step solution with explanation. It starts with calculating the force acting on the particle in the magnetic field.

Solution Preview

From the Lorentz Force Law, the force acting on a charged particle in a magnetic field is given by,

F = q V x B = q V B sin(theta)

where q is the charge, V its velocity and B is ...
