Circular motion of ions in a magnetic field

A beam of ions, each of charge \(–3.20 \times 10^{–19}\text{ C}\) and travelling at a speed of \(1.2 \times 10^5\text{ m s}^{–1}\), enters a region where a uniform magnetic field of flux density \(2.4 \times 10^{-2}\text{ T}\) acts normally to the original direction of the beam, as shown below.

When the ions are in the magnetic field, they are deflected and they travel in a circular path of radius \(0.390\text{ m}\). What is the nucleon number of the nuclei of the ions in the beam?
