A proton (q = 1.6 X 10-19 C, m = 1.67 X 10-27 kg) moving with
constant velocity enters a region containing a constant magnetic
field that is directed along the z-axis at (x,y) = (0,0) as shown.
The magnetic field extends for a distance D = 0.75 m in the
x-direction. The proton leaves the field having a velocity vector
(vx, vy) = (3.9 X 105 m/s, 1.9 X 105 m/s).
1)What is v, the magnitude of the velocity of the proton as it entered the region containing the magnetic field?
2)What is R, the radius of curvature of the motion of the proton
while it is in the region containing the magnetic field?
3)What is h, the y co-ordinate of the proton as it leaves the
region conating the magnetic field?
4)What is Bz, the z-component of the magnetic field?
Note that Bz is a signed number.
If the incident velocity v were increased, how would h and θ change, if at all?
