A cubical region of space is filled with some uniform electric

Question:

A cubical region of space is filled with some uniform electric and magnetic fields. An electron enters the cube across one of its faces with velocity v and a positron enters via opposite face with velocity –v. At this instant,

(a) the electric forces on both the particles cause identical acceleration

(b) the magnetic forces on both the particles cause equal accelerations

(c) both particles gain or lose energy at the same rate

(d) the motion of the centre of mass (CM) is determined by B alone

Solution:

(b) the magnetic forces on both the particles cause equal accelerations

(c) both particles gain or lose energy at the same rate

(d) the motion of the centre of mass (CM) is determined by B alone
