# Path of charged particle, if only magnetic force acts on it can be.circlehelix with constant pitchhelix with variable pitchcycloid

A
cycloid
B
helix with constant pitch
C
helix with variable pitch
D
circle
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### If the velocity of the charged makes an angle θ with the direction of the magnetic field, ,due to component perpendicular to →B , the particle moves in a circle. The component parallel to →B provides motion along the →B.Thus, the particle will have a helical path. In a uniform magnetic field, the pitch will be constant.
