(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An alpha particle enters a uniform verical magnetic field of 1.0 T with a velocity of 2.0m/s East.

a) Find the force exerted on the particle by the field.

b) Find the acceleration of the particle.

c) Find the radius of curvature of the path of the particle.

2. Relevant equations

F= QvB ???

3. The attempt at a solution

B= 1.0 T

v= 2.0m/s

How do I solve it without given Q???
