What is pitch of the helical path followed by a charged particle moving along and making an angle θ with the magnetc field ?

Dear Student,

Pitch of the helical path is distance between two consecutive points along magnetic field direction. It is given by,

Where, T = time period of the charged particle

v = velocity of the charged particle

m = mass of the charged particle

B = magnetic field

 velocity of the particle multiply cos(angle made by the particle with the positive X-direction) multiply (2 multiply pi multiply mass)/(charge multiply magnetic field)
