Homework Statement



A 61.0 cm diameter cyclotron uses a 500 V oscillating potential difference between the dees. The magnetic field strength is 0.790 ?

How many revolutions would a proton make before leaving the cyclotron?

Homework Equations



v/r=Bq/m Ke=1/2mv^2

The Attempt at a Solution



I am completely stumped on this problem, I have calculated the max speed, and therefor max kinetic energy. But cannot figure out how to derive number of revolutions from there.

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Canadian,

Why would the electron leave the cyclotron,
Describe first how this device works.
How does the electron reach the escape speed?
