Velocity

Unit
Velocity of the charge carriers passing the ideal velocity filter (i.e. the aperture).

Magnetic field

Unit
Homogeneous magnetic field inside the velocity filter, perpendicular to the velocity direction.

Voltage

Unit
Voltage between the capacitor plates of the velocity filter.

Plate distance

Unit
Distance between the two capacitor plates.
