a) is a wrong answer, b,c,d are correct.

w=qB/mass The radius is determined by q,B and mass, and velocity.

  1. Did you look at the link? http://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/316/lectures/node73.html
    read it.

  2. Note that angular frequency (2PI*freq) does not depend on velocity, or radius, but rather

    w= qB/m
