A mass spectrometer is used to determine the mass of triply charged negative ions. The ions were first accelerated through a potential difference of 90.0 V, and then injected into a 70.0 mT magnetic field where they have a radius of curvature of 11.6 cm. Determine the mass of the unknown ions. [1.76 x 10-25 kg]

The mass of the ion is 1.76 x 10-25 kg.

Use the information below to answer question 12.
One end of an iron bar is coiled with insulated wires and
attached to a 10 V AC power supply. The other end of the
iron bar is coiled with twice the length of wire and is
attached to a voltmeter as shown in the diagram
12.

Using the diagram, explain how electrical power is
induced in the secondary coil even though no
current can transfer from the primary. [Appendix A]

primary coil

secondary coil

V
10 V

The changing electric field produces a changing magnetic field in the primary coil which then produces a changing electric field leading to a changing magnetic field in the secondary coil. This allows electric charge in the wire to be influenced by an induced voltage that will cause a reading to register in the secondary coils voltmeter.
