(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the minimum radius of curvature for an alpha particle, He, moving at 2.0x10^-6m/s in a magnetic field of 2.9x10^-5T?

2. Relevant equations

F=qvBsin(theta)...then F=BILsin(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

F=qvBsin(theta)

=(1.602x10^-19)(2.0x10^6)(2.9x10^-5T)sin90

=9.2916x10^-18

F=BILsin(theta)......
