Lesson: Charge-to-Mass Ratio Physics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the charge-to-mass ratio of different particles.
Two charged particles, A and B, are directed through a uniform magnetic field perpendicularly to the field. Particle A has a larger charge-to-mass ratio than particle B. Which particle will experience a greater acceleration due to the magnetic field?
Two particles, A and B, have the same charge but different masses. Particle A has a larger mass than particle B. Does particle A have a greater charge-to-mass ratio than particle B or a smaller one?
By what factor must the charge-to-mass ratio of an electron be multiplied to get the charge-to-mass ratio of a positron?
