hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was approached by this problem,

prove q/m = (2V)/(B^2r^2) [2V over B-squared r-squared]

so far i have,

F[electric] = qE

F[magnetic] = Qvb

F[electric] = F[magnetic]

therefore, v = E/B

-----

now i am a bit confused/wrong

-----

E[kinetic] = (mv^2)/2

therefore, q x V = (mv^2)/2

therefore, q/m = E^2/(2VB^2)

jus by looking at the result, i have to get E= 2V/r.

any insights will be greatly appreciated....

if my method even correct?
