A point charge is moving at 1 x 10^6 meters per second. At the origin (0,0), a magnetic field of 1 T is applied into the page. The charge = 1.6 x 10^/10 C. 1) Calculate the force. 2) Calculate the exact location it hits the X intercept. 3) Calculate the time is takes to hit the X intercept (starting from the origin). I can answer the first two questions. For the third, I calculated circumference and divided it by 2 to find the total distance traveled. My question is, if a magnetic force was created, was acceleration created as well? When I calculated the time, i first found the acceleration by using F = ma Once I found the acceleration, I plugged it into d = vt + 1/2 at2 to find the time. Should I have disregarded the centripital acceleration and just used d = vt?
