Statement of a problem № 10656


Two of the isotopes of carbon, carbon-12 and carbon-13, have masses of 19.93 × 10-27 kg and 21.59 × 10-27 kg, respectively. These two isotopes are singly ionized (+e), each given a speed of 6.667 × 105 m/s. The ions then enter the bending region of a mass spectrometer where the magnetic field is 0.8500 T. Determine the spatial separation between the two isotopes after they have traveled through a half-circle.
