A cyclotron howing magnetic field
60.75 X 10^-3T is used to acceleraete
a beam of protons over a region
of radius 7.
20 m. Find the kinetic
energy of the protons.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The formula for the magnetic force acting on a proton if the proton is moving perpendicular to the magnetic field is:

Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 1
Step 2

The motion is a circular motion. Therefore, the formula for the centripetal force acting on the proton is:

Physics homework question answer, step 2, image 1
Step 3

The circular motion of the proton is due to the magnetic force (field). There...
