(a) Interpretation: The range of the field strengths required is to be stated. Concept introduction: A magnetic sector instrument is a mass spectrometer which makes use of a static electric or a magnetic sector. These instruments separate the ions in magnetic field as per the momentum of the ion, charge of the ion and the magnetic field strength. The magnetic field bends the ion beams in an arc.
