2. Homework Equations



3. The Attempt at a Solution
i need someone to confirm if this is right...
1) B
3)C<B<A
For the first one, my friend said it's A,because it bends more,
i think he is wrong...
If i am wrong, plz explain it
ty! (just 1 and 3)

Path of the charged particle in a uniform magnetic field is given by
m*v^2/r = qvB
or
m*v = q*r*B.
Now try for the solution.

r=(mv)/qB, radius is proportional to the velocity,
B have the largest radius, so the speed will be the fastest

r=(mv)/qB, radius is proportional to the inverse of charge
A have the smallest radius, so the charge will the biggest,...
C<B<A
am i right?

Your answers are correct.
For 2, use Flemming's left hand rule to decide the nature of the charges.
