An electron gun with its collector at a potential of 100 V fires out electrons in a spherical bulb containing hydrogen gas at low pressure $\left(~{10}^{-2}mmofHg\right).$ A magnetic field of $2.83\times {10}^{-4}T$ curves the path of the electrons in a circular orbit of radius 12.0 cm. (The path can be viewed because the gas ions in the path focus the beam by attracting electrons, and emitting light by electron capture; this method is known as the 'fine beam tube' method. Specific charge ratio (e/m) is:

1. \(1.21 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{C}~ \mathrm{kg}^{-1}\)

2. \(1.73 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{C}~\mathrm{kg}^{-1}\)

3. \(2.53 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{C}~\mathrm{kg}^{-1}\)
