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

what is the mass of a particle which travels in a circular path with a kinetic energy of 3.2 x 10 ^-19 J moving perpendicular to a 0.200t magnetic field if it has a charge of 1.6 x10 ^-19 C and the path radius is 10 cm

2. Relevant equations

ke= 1/2 mv^2

mv^2/r = qvB

r = mv^2/qvB = mv/qB

mv = qBr

3. The attempt at a solution

mv =qbr

mv = 1.6 x10 ^-19 C x 0.200 T x 0.1 M

mv = 3.2x 10 ^-21

i cant figure out how to seperate the mass and velocity using ke=1/2mv^2

any help is much appreciated
