MHT-CET : Physics Entrance Exam

### MHT - CET : Physics - Electrons and Photons Know More

1.      Properties of Photons

a.      Applying Einstein's mass - energy equation
E =
mc2
Where E = energy,
m = mass,
c = velocity of light.
Mass of a photon is obtained as follows:

 m= E = hn = h C2 C2 C l

b.

c.       Momentum of a photon is given by,

 p = mc E .c = hv = h C2 C2 C l

d.

e.      Energy of a photon = hv; energy of a beam of n photons = nhv.

f.        Photons are electrically neutral.

2.      Path of a Charged Particle in a Magnetic Field

 A charged particle moving with velocity n in a magnetic field B experiences a force

3.

 F = q n x B

a.      If a charged particle moving with velocity enters a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to its velocity, it moves in a circular path of radius

 r = mn qB

b.

 where m = mass of the particle, q = charge on the particle.

c.

d.      If a charged particle enters a uniform magnetic field so that its velocity makes an angle q with the field (i.e., its velocity has a component in the direction of the field), then it moves in hellical path around the direction of the field.

e.      If a charged particle enters a uniform magnetic field directed parallel to its velocity, then it experiences no force and continues to travel undeflected in a straight line.
