## Homework Statement

Two radioactive isotopes of singly charged plutonium(Pu-249 and Pu-244) are accelerated through a potential difference of 3.00kW and enter a uniform magnetic field of 1.50T directed perpendicular to their velocities. By performing relevat calculations, show that the ratio of the path radii is independent of potential difference and magnetic field.

Given: an atomic mass unit = 1.66*10^-27kg

## Homework Equations

R=mv/qB

## The Attempt at a Solution

How can I start answering this question?

From the equation, both "v" and "B" are involved. So isn't it dependent?
