4.18 b) A charged particle enters an environment of a strong and non-uniform magnetic field varying from point to point both in magnitude and direction, and comes out of it following a complicated trajectory. Would its final speed equal the initial speed if it suffered no collisions with the environment?

Yes, its final speed will be equal to the initial speed if it has not undergone any collision as the work done by the magnetic field on a charged particle is always zero because it acts perpendicular to the velocity of the particle.
