Homework Help: Magnetic Field (Fc)

  1. Apr 16, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    How would I find how long it takes for an alpha particle to move halfway through a complete circle?

    2. Relevant equations

    Fc=mv^2
    Ft=mv


    3. The attempt at a solution

    if they gave me speed how would I find how much it traveled?
