Students will study the motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field, in order to determine the strength of the field of one of the ATLAS magnets, used to measure the momentum of the particles produced by particle collisions at the CERN LHC accelerator. The momentum of the tracks, as measured by the detector, is provided (since the magnetic field is known-but not given for this purpose of this exercise).

Prior Knowledge Requirements
