Textbook Problem

Electrons in Earth’s upper atmosphere have typical speeds near 6.00 × 105 m/s. (a) Calculate the magnitude of Earth’s magnetic field if an electron’s velocity is perpendicular to the magnetic field and its circular path has a radius of 7.00 × 10−2 m. (b) Calculate the number of times per second that an electron circles around a magnetic field line.
