As the charged particle enters perpendicular to the magneticfield, the force will act perpendicular to the velocity. Thus the particlestarts moving in the circular path. As force and displacement are perpendicularsthe work done will be zero and kinetic energy will not change. But as it movesin circular path direction of momentum will change but the magnitude is unchanged
