Question

A particle of mass 0.195 g carries a charge of -2.50 x 10^-8 C. The particle is given an initial horizontal velocity that is due north and has magnitude 4.00 x 10^4 m/s. What are the magnitude and direction of the minimum mgnetic field that will keep the particle moving in the earth's gravitational field in the same horizontal, northward direction? Conceptually explain why the B-field is in this direction.

Answer #1

The formula for magnetic force on a moving charge is

F = Bqv

the formula for earth's gravitational field is

F = mg

Bqv = mg

B = mg/ qv

=(0.195 * 10 ^-3 kg) (9.8)/ -2.50 x 10^-8 C. ( 4.00 x 10^4 m/s. )

= 1.91 T

Since the charge is negative, the magnetic force is opposite to
the

right-hand rule direction. The minimum magnetic field is when the
field is perpendicular to v! . The force is also

perpendicular toB

soB is either eastward or westward.

The magnetic field could also have a component along the
north-south direction, that would not

contribute to the force, but then the field wouldnt have minimum
magnitude

A particle of mass 0.2g carries a charge 10^-8C. It was given an
initial horizontal velocity ?? = (5 × 10^4 ??) in +x direction.
What are the magnitude and direction of the minimum magnetic field
that will cancel gravitational effects? Neglect Earth’s magnetic
field.
