AP Free Response Question
Period of an Charged Particle in a Magnetic Field
Prove that the time required for a particle of mass,
m
, and charge,
q
, to complete one orbit in a magnetic field,
B
, is constant and only depends on its ratio of mass/charge. That is, show that the particle's period is independent of both the value of the orbit's radius and the orbiting particle's speed.
