# Hitting the target in two different ways

Electrons are accelerated by an electron gun. As the electrons exit the gun they are deflected by a uniform magnetic field of fixed magnitude $$B$$ directed into the page. The electrons hit a small (point-like) target $$T$$. An experimentalist noticed that if the magnetic field is directed along the line $$\overline{OT}$$ the electrons also hit the target $$T$$. For what minimum angle $$\alpha_{min}$$ in degrees is this possible? Assume that all electrons have the same initial velocity.
