Well, you really did not ask a question. All you did was give the equation fort a parabola. So what? y = x^2 - 2 x - 3 do you want to know where that is zero? Where the vertex is? how it looks? if you want the two zeros, just factor it y = (x-3)(x+1) that is zero when: x = 3 ...

As a charged particle passes through a magnetic field it experiences a force perpendicular to its direction of motion. That is a centripetal force leading to centripetal acceleration v^2/r so F = q v B and F = m v^2/r so q v B = m v^2 / r and finally r = m v/(q B)
