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?
