Electron Orbits

  1. Mar 22, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    An electron orbits in a 5.76 mT field with an angular momentum of 6.10 x 10-26 kg m2/s. What is the radius of the orbit (in m)?

    2. Relevant equations
    F = mv2/r
    F= QRB

    3. The attempt at a solution
    MV2/r = qrb
    v = wr
    so i plugged and my answer is still wrong .any help please
