# Question Solved1 AnswerQuestion 2 a + + B A beam of positive ions is accelerated through a potential difference V and enters a uniform magnetic field of magnitude B directed out of the page. The ions then travel through the magnetic field in a circular path, as shown in the figure. The ions include three types: hydrogen (mass=m, charge=9), deuterium (mass=2m, charge=q), and tritium (mass=3m, charge=q). The hydrogen ions move in a semicircle of radius R. The magnitude of the magnetic field is decreased so the hydrogen ions travel in a path with double the radius. Which of the following is a correct claim about the change in the deuterium's path and provides correct reasoning to support this claim? A The radius of the deuterium's path will also double, because mass is not a factor in the radius of the path. B The radius of the deuterium's path will also double, because decreasing the magnitude of the magnetic field creates the same change in both paths. С The radius of the deuterium's path will more than double, because the mass of the deuterium ion is greater than the mass of the hydrogen ion. D The radius of the deuterium's path will more than double, because the deuterium ion will be traveling slower than the hydrogen ion. E The radius of the deuterium's path will less than double its original value, because the mass of the deuterium ion is greater than the mass of the hydrogen ion.
