2.5.4 Worked example 2.4

Course subject(s) Module 2: Electricity & magnetism

In this worked example we will take a look at the Lorentz force in a cyclotron, and how the cyclotron is used to get high energy particles. We will identify how the particle gains energy due to switching polarity of the voltage, but will not use this.
