    An electron enters a uniform magnet field having a flux density 200uT at a speed of 2x10 6 ms-1 perpendicular to the field. Determine the radius of its orbit, then find the required electric field strength, applied perpendicular to the magnetic field, if the electron is to be continue in a straight line on entering the combined fields, and sketch it?
