# physics problem.?

A muon (a particle with the same charge as an electron) is traveling at 4.75 ✕ 107 m/s at right angles to a magnetic field. The muon experiences a force of 5.8 10-12 N.

(a) How strong is the field?

(b) What acceleration does the muon experience if its mass is 1.9 10-28 kg.

m/s2

(a) BY F = qvBsinθ

=>5.8 x 10^-12 = 1.6 x 10^-19 x 4.75 x 10^7 x B x sin90*

=>B = 0.76 T

(b) By F = ma

=>5.8 x 10^-12 = 1.9 x 10^-28 x a

=>a = 3.05 x 10^16 m/s^2
