(Please see attached figure)

The uniform 32.0 mT magnetic field in the figure points in the positive z-direction. An electron enters the region of magnetic field with a speed of 5.50 * 10^6 m/s and at an angle of 30 degrees above the xy-plane.

1. Find the radius r of the electron's spiral trajectory.

2. Find the pitch p of the electron's spiral trajectory.
