An electron and a proton are circulating with same speed in circular paths of equal radius. Which one among the following will happen, if the mass of proton is about 2,000 times that of an electron?

Question 

An electron and a proton are circulating with same speed in circular paths of equal radius. Which one among the following will happen, if the mass of proton is about 2,000 times that of an electron?

(a) The centripetal force required by the electron is about 2,000 times more than that required by the proton.

(b) The centripetal force required by the proton is about 2,000 times more than that required by the electron

(c) No centripetal force is required for any charged particle

(d) Equal centripetal force acts on both the particles as they rotate in the same circular path

Solution

Correct Answer is: (b) The centripetal force required by the proton is about 2,000 times more than that required by the electron
