An Electron is accelerated through a potential difference of 5.0KV

(i) Find it's velocity.

(ii) It is then passed through a region of transverse magnetic field where it moves in a circular path of radius 0.20m. Find the magnititude of the field.

(iii) Find the time taken to for the electron to complete one rotation.

2. Relevant equations

For (iii)

Rotational KE = ½ Iw2

max velocity = 3x10^(7)

Magnitude of the field = 8.52x10^(-4)

potential difference = 5.0kV

radius = 0.20m

t = ?

3. The attempt at a solution

(i) I got 3x10^(7)

(ii) I got 8.52x10^(-4)

(iii) I'm really not sure how to approach this question any hints in the right direction would be great.
