Magnetic fields are formed by...
Magnetic forces cannot change the __ or __ of charged particles
speed , kinetic energy
Because magnets cannot change the kinetic energy of a charged particle, it follows that a magnet can __ on a particle.
Magnetic forces can __ particles by changing their direction and also change the __ of the particles.
accelerate , path

Concept: Right Hand Rule for Charged Particles
Flat palm like a high five: Thumb points to velocity, palm of hand points to force, fingers point to magnetic field.
When does a charged particle take a circular path in a magnetic field?
When velocity if perpendicular to the field
When does a charged particle take a helical path in a magnetic field?
When velocity has a component parallel to the field
When does a charged particle take a straight path in a magnetic field?
When velocity is entirely parallel to the field.
No work is ever done in a magnetic field because...
Velocity and force are always perpendicular
