Heres one more question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a particle accelerator, an alpha particle with a mass of 6.64 x10^-27 kg is moving with a speed of 2.50x10^7 m/s. It is moving perpendicularily through a magnetic field of intensity 0.150 T. Using appropriote equations and method find the radius of curvature of its path.

I'm completly stumped on this HW question due tomorrow, I'm looking through my notes for an equation for this. Also I have no idea how to find the radius of the curvature.

PLEASE HELP.
