In mass spectrometer, the ions are sorted out in which of the following ways?
(a) By accelerating them through electric field
(b) By accelerating them through magnetic field
(c) By accelerating them through electric and magnetic field
(d) By applying a high voltage
This question was addressed to me in an interview.
I need to ask this question from Principle of operation of Mass Spectrometer in chapter Mass Spectrometer of Analytical Instrumentation
