A beam of protons is accelerated through a potential difference of 0.745 kV and then enters a uniform magnetic field traveling perpendicular to the field. (a) What magnitude of field is needed to bend these protons in a circular arc of diameter 1.75 m? (b) What magnetic field would be needed to produce a path with the same diameter if the particles were electrons haveing the same speed as the protons?

ok for part (a) I confused on what equation to incorporate all the givens! I am lost! and for part (b) you would just need to change the mass of the the protons to the mass of electrons or is there more to that?
