Question: 
  1. If the cyclotron of Example 32–2 accelerated $\alpha$ particles, what maximum energy could they attain? What would their speed be?
  2. Repeat for deuterons ${^{2}_{1}\textrm{H}}$.
  3. In each case, what frequency of voltage is required?

Quick Answer: 
  1. $v = 2.0 \times 10^7 \textrm{ m/s, } KE = 8.7 \textrm{ MeV}$
  2. $v=2.0 \times 10^7 \textrm{ m/s, } KE=4.3 \textrm{ MeV}$
  3. $13 \textrm{ MHz}$ for both ${}_2^4He$ and ${}_1^2H$

I believe the velocity is 10^6, not 10^7

nevermind, i made a mistake
