This same magnetic field is then used to deflect the ion in a circular path with a radius of 15 mm. Find the mass and kinetic energy of the ion. This is the last of the tough questions I've got to submit. Cheers for any help!

The rules of this forum dictate that you must make an attempt on your own first before we're allowed to help you. If you're unable to figure out s first attempt then please explain the problem as to what may be holding you back.
