Magnetic force:

$\overline{)\mathbf{}{\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{q}}{\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{B}}}$

Centripetal force:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{F}}}_{{\mathbf{c}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{m}}\frac{{\mathbf{v}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{r}}}$

The magnetic force provides the centripetal force. Therefore,

F = F_{c}

qvB = mv^{2}/r

r = mv^{2}/qvB = mv/qB

Rank the particles on the basis of their speed.

Rank from largest to smallest.
