1. A proton of charge + 1.6 x 10^(-19) C and mass 1.67 x 10^(-27)kg is introduced into a region of B = 1.5 T with an initial velocity of 1.25 x 10^6 m/s perpendicular to B. What is the radius of the proton's path?

Force on proton = F= q v B sin theta

where theta is the angle between the velocity and the direction of the magnetic field

in this case theta = 90 degrees therefore Sin theta = 1

Therefore Force on proton = F= q v B sin theta = q v B x 1 = qvB

This force provides the centripetal force= m v ^2 / r

Equating the two

mv^2/r = qvB

or r= mv/ qB

m= 1.67 x 10^(-27) kg

v= 1.25 x 10^6 m/s

B= 1.5 T

q= 1.6 x 10^(-19) C

Therefore r= mv/ qB = 0.0087 m

Answer: radius of the proton's path= 0.0087 m
