An electron and a proton, moving parallel to each other in the same direction with equal momenta,enter into a uniform magnetic field, which is right angle to their velocities. Trace their trajectories in the magnetic field and explain with derivation.

Expert Answer:

The electron will move in circular motion of radius r=P/qB
 
But photon does not have any charge so it is not deflected by magnetic or electric field.
