## Question:

A cyclotron is accelerating proton where the applied magnetic field is 2 T, the potential gap is 10{eq}KV {/eq} then how much turn the proton has to moving between these to acquire a kinetic energy 20{eq}meV {/eq} a) 200 b) 300 c) 150 d)100

## The change in Kinetic Energy and Electric Potential Difference:

The change in kinetic energy of a charged particle when it passes through a potential difference {eq}\Delta V {/eq} is given by the equation;

{eq}\Delta (K.E.) = q \Delta V {/eq}

where, {eq}q {/eq} is the charge of the charge particle and {eq}\Delta (K.E.) {/eq} is the change in the kinetic energy.
