Period of an Charged Particle in a Magnetic Field

Printer Friendly Version
 Prove that the time required for a particle of mass, m, and charge, q, to complete one orbit in a magnetic field, B, is constant and only depends on its ratio of mass/charge. That is, show that the particle's period is independent of both the value of the orbit's radius and the orbiting particle's speed.
