$T = \frac{2\pi~m}{q~B}$

Work Step by Step

The force $F$ provides the centripetal force to keep the particle moving in a circle. We can find an expression for the speed; $F = \frac{m~v^2}{r}$ $q~v~B = \frac{m~v^2}{r}$ $v = \frac{q~r~B}{m}$ We then find the period $T$ of the circular motion: $T = \frac{distance}{speed}$ $T = \frac{2\pi~r}{v}$ $T = \frac{2\pi~r}{(q~r~B)/m}$ $T = \frac{2\pi~m}{q~B}$
