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

An electron is accelerated through 2400V from rest and then enters a region where there is a uniform 1.7 T magnetic field. What are (a) the maximum and (b) the minimum magnitudes of the magnetic force acting on this electron?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]F_{b}=q(v * B)[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm unsure of where to start. How do you calculate the speed (v) if they only give you the voltage that the electron goes through? I have all of the other required information to plug in the equation but not the speed of the electron. Thanks.
