Question: At a certain location, the horizontal component of the earth's magnetic field is 4.6E-5 T, due north. A proton moves eastward with just the right speed, so the magnetic force on it balances the weight. Find the speed of the proton.

Solution Preview

In equilibrium, weight of the proton (downward)=magnetic force(upward)
Therefore:

m*g = ...
