§ 7 The motion of charged particles in a magnetic field
Lorentz force is always perpendicular to the velocity of motion of a charged particle, so it only changes the direction of the velocity without changing its value. Consequently, the Lorentz force does not do work
because
ie static magnetic field does not do work on a moving charged particle in it and the kinetic energy of the particle in a magnetic field does not change. 1. ie static magnetic field does not do work on a moving charged particle in it and the kinetic energy of the particle in a magnetic field does not change. parallel to the vector , then sinα = 0°, F_{L} = 0, and the particle moves in a rectilinearly inertia evenly. F_{L} = 0; S=vt.
2. If the particle enters the magnetic field and the velocity vector is perpendicular to the vector , thensinα = 90°, F_{L} = qvB. Because perpendicular to the velocity , then is the centripetal force, and the motion of the particle will be in a circle, the center of which coincides with one of lines of force vector
