Problem 15PE

(a) An oxygen-16 ion with a mass of 2.66×10−26 kg travels at 5.00×106 m/s perpendicular to a 1.20-T magnetic field, which makes it move in a circular arc with a 0.231-m radius. What positive charge is on the ion? (b) What is the ratio of this charge to the charge of an electron? (c) Discuss why the ratio found in (b) should be an integer.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 15PE

(a)  The charge on ion is 4.80 x

(b) the ratio of charge on ion to charge on electron is 3. Thus, the ion is 3 times heavier than an electron
