As the mass of the particle is increased while the speed of the particles remains the same, would you expect the bending to increase, decrease, or stay the same?

i thought it would increase because of the weight pulling it. but it was wrong

  • chem -

    the bending is caused by a force acting on the particle.

    A heavier particle has more inertia, so the same force will move it less.
