Question

A particle of mass $$m$$ and charge $$q$$ moves with a constant velocity $$v$$ along the positive $$x-$$ direction. It enters a region containing a uniform magnetic field $$B$$ directed along the negative $$z-$$ direction, extending from $$x=a$$ to $$x=b$$. The minimum value of $$v$$ required so that the particle can just enter the region $$x > b$$ is

A
qbBm
B
q(ba)Bm
C
qaBm
D
q(b+a)B2m

Solution

The correct option is B $$\dfrac {q(b-a)B}{m}$$Radius of curvature has to be greater than the width of magnetic field for the particle to enter the region $$x \gt B$$.$$\therefore \dfrac{mv}{qB} \gt (b-a)$$$$\Rightarrow v \gt \dfrac{qB(b-a)}{m}$$$$\therefore v_{min} = \dfrac{qB(b-a)}{m}$$Physics
