A mass spectrometer as shown in the attached figure is used to separate isotopes. If the bean emerges with a speed of 363 km/s and the magnetic field in the mass selector is 1.4 T, what is the distance between the collectors for 235U+1 and 238U+1? The mass of 235U+1 is 235 u and the mass of 238U+1 is 238 u, where the atomic mass unit u = 1.66 x 10-27 kg.
