Determination of e/m of an Electron

1. Purpose

        To determine e/m of an electron experimentally

2. Procedure

        Prepare an electron-accelerator. Place it between Helmholts Coils, which produces a uniform magnetic field. The electron-accelerator creates a potential difference, v, which speeds up a negatively charged electron to image00.png.

  2. Investigating a factor affecting the voltage output of a transformer.

    magnetic field lines would not be cut by the maximum number of secondary coils turns. However I would like to carry out work varying the distances and overlaps between the coils to find out if this statement is correct. I have described the reasons why I don't believe my results are accurate in the Analysis section.

    that, the more turns on the coil is proportional to the number of paper clips that be supported and picked up. My graph proves just that because it has a strong positive correlation. The number of paper clips increases in comparison to the number of coils that increase.

  1. Charge To Mass Ratio For An Electron

    The charge-to-mass ratio of the electron involves two numbers which are independently regarded as fundamental constants of physics. Yet this ratio itself can be said to be a fundamental constant in its own right because first, its determination actually led to the discovery of the electron by Thomson , and
