Explanation of the phenomena based on the Lorentz force in the mass-specrtometer experimentz

The Lorentz force is the electromagnetic force. It occurs when charge moves in the electric and magnetic fields. 

This force is centripetal. When a charged particle moves under the influence of the Lorentz force, the particle acquires centripetal and centrifugal acceleration. 

1. The action of the Lorentz force in the experiments shows that the mass of the particle is proportional to the charge. These experiments demonstrate that the neutral matter (the Newtonian mass, which does not contain charges) does not exist and, accordingly, there is no gravity in the Newtonian view. 

2. The charge causes EMF, calculated according to the formula

ei= - dФ/dt,

where dФ/dt  is the changes of the flux of the magnetic field generated by the charge’s accelerated motion. The presence of this EMF reveals the mechanism of the second Newtonian law and helps explain why it is impossible to give the body an acceleration instantaneously. 

3. We have already discussed that the orbiting electron is under the action of the Coulomb centripetal force and centrifugal force. Two forces of electrical origin oppose each other. The charge motion in the accelerator/magnetometer/along a circular orbit around the “empty center” is not fundamentally different from the previously discussed situation. The centripetal force – the Lorentz force – acts on the side of the magnet, and the centrifugal force (opposing the centripetal one) is the same force of self-induction which can be examined as the Lorentz force acting on the side of the environment in which it is moving. 

4. The Lenz rule applied to the Lorentz force explains the stability of atomic and planetary orbits. This is the solution of one of the issues that have given impetus to the emergence of quantum mechanics.
