a MAGNET CAN EXERT A FORCE ON A MOVING CHARGED PARTICLE, BUT IT CAN NOT CHANGE THE PARTICLE'S KINETIC ENERGY. WHY?

  1. The force that a magnetic field exerts on a charge is always perpendicular to the direction of motion. Work is only done by the force component along the direction of motion, and that component is always zero.
