Find the mass and kinetic energy of an ion (Given magnetic field, ion path radius)

In a mass spectrometer, a doubly charged ion having a particular velocity is selected by using a magnetic field of 100mT perpendicular to an electric field of
1.0 KV/m. 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.
