Omputational Exercise 3 : Cyclotron motion
( no sources )
I will upload all the DOCUMENT i have thats will help u with the writing
Introduction (5-10 sentences): (6pts)
What were you simulating in this lab? What is cyclotron motion? What parameters (variables) could you change? A similar experiment was performed by J. J. Thomson in 1897 to measure the charge-to-mass ratio of the electron with incredible accuracy. Read about this experiment on your own and discuss how it relates to this lab.
Worksheet + screenshots of particle trajectories (10ptssee above)
Conclusion (5-10+ sentences): (4pts)
Did the simulation agree with what you expected? What were the effects of changing the mass, velocity, and charge of the particle? What were the effects of changing the strength of the magnetic field? What are the limitations of the simulation (i.e. sources of error/differences between simulation and reality)?
