Step 1

Since we only answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts (up to 3) you’d like answered.

Given,

The radius of circular path r with charge of alpha particle q and mass of alpha particle m and magnetic field B.

Step 2

Part(a)

Here, the magnetic force (Fmag) contributes in centripetal force (Fcentripetal) i.e.:

Step 3

Now, plugging the given...
