Question

In a cyclotron, a charged particle
  1. undergoes acceleration all the time.
  2. speeds up between the dees because of the magnetic field.
  3. speeds up in a dee
  4. slows down within a dee and speeds up between dees.

A
speeds up between the dees because of the magnetic field.
B
speeds up in a dee
C
undergoes acceleration all the time.
D
slows down within a dee and speeds up between dees.
Solution
Verified by Toppr

In a cyclotron, charged particle experiences coulombic force(force due to electric field) between the Dees and magnetic force ( force due to magnetic field ) while circulating inside the Dees. In total, it always experiences a force.
