Question

A positive charge particle ?enters a region with both a uniform electric field? and magnetic field ?. If the direction of ?is parallel to ?, the path of the particle will be

A. circle B. parabolaC. helix D. sinusoidal E. straight line

Answer #1

Answer :

(E) Straight line

Force on the charged particlre of charge q coulomb moving parallel to a magnetic field,

F = qvBSin(theta)

For parallel motion, theta = 0°

So, force = 0.

Thus,

The charged particle will move along the lines of electric field (and magnetic field). The magnetic field will exert no force as the velocity of particle is parrallel to the magnetic field. The force by electric field will be along the lines of uniform electric field. Hence the particle will move in a straight line.

1. A particle of positive charge q and mass m

parabola.

A particle of mass m and charge q enters a region of magnetic
field, in a direction that is prependiuclar to the field boundary.
The particle then exits the region in the opposite direction to the
one it entered the field, 7.7 ms later. The distance between the
point of entry and exit is 14.5 mm. If the particle is 4 times the
mass of a proton, and carries 20 times the charge of a proton, what
is the field...

a proton traveling due north enters a region that contains
both a magnetic field and an electric field the electric field
lines point vertically downward toward the surface of the earth it
is observed that the proton continues to travel in a straight line
due north in what direction must the magnetic field lines
point
