How a cyclotron works?plz... explain
Dear Student! Please refer to the answers provided by your friends, thanks.
A few things to add...
The diagram of the cyclotron in the study notes should be helpful.
The charge follows a spiral path with increasing radius as its under constant acceleration due to the external magnetic field (perpendicular to the plane of the page). The chambers D1 and D2 are hollow and allow the particle to flow through them. The oscillator helps in changing the electric polarity of the two Dees (D1 and D2) it changes from negative to positive repeatedly. This helps in accelerating the charge as it is drawn to is opposite polarity.
Hello @All! Thanks for the hard work, keep it up!
The cyclotron is a charged particle accelerator.that employs a perpendicular magnetic field induced by high electrical current. The field pushes a charged particle around a circular path at a constant acceleration.
