Limitations of Cyclotron
* Cyclotron cannot accelerate uncharged particles like neutrons.
* Cyclotron cannot accelerate electrons because of its small mass.
* It cannot accelerate positively charged particles with large mass due to relativistic effect.

Actually electrons have a very less mass,,due to which a small change in energy can accelerated it very much,, it can be up-to the velocity of light which would make it to behave like wave
