Question 11: NCERT Solutions for 12th Class Physics: Chapter 4-Moving Charges and Magnetism

In a chamber, a uniform magnetic field of 6.5 G (1 G = 10-4 T) is maintained. An electron is shot into the field with a speed of 4.8 × 106 m s-1 normal to the field. Explain why the path of the electron is a circle. Determine the radius of the circular orbit. (e= 1.6 × 10-19 C,me = 9.1 × 10-31 kg)
