A laboratory electromagnet produces a magnetic field of magnitude 1.44 T. A proton moves through this field with a speed of 5.98 ✕ 106 m/s.
(a) Find the magnitude of the maximum magnetic force that could
be exerted on the proton.
(b) What is the magnitude of the maximum acceleration of the proton?
(c) Would the field exert the same magnetic force on an electron moving through the field with the same speed? (Assume that the electron is moving in the same direction as the proton.)
This answer has not been graded yet.
(d) Would the electron undergo the same acceleration?
