4a1. Find the direction and magnitude of force exerted on an electron with initial velocity (= 100 m/s) along +x axis, if

the magnetic field (2 T) is pointing at +30

angle from +X axis, in the XY plane.

C)(100 m/s)(2T)sin(30 ) = N, along the - z direction, i.e. into the paper.

4a2. Find the direction and magnitude of force exerted on an electron with initial velocity (= 1000 m/s) along +x axis,
if the magnetic field ( 2 T) is pointing in +z direction, i.e. out of the paper.

spectrometer described in Module4b? How strong a B is needed if the detected ion is charged iron (Fe ) instead? Use
[6], and then use [7].
