18.25. Set Up: Apply with and Solve: (a) An electron gains energy when it moves to higher potential, so and so (b) Reflect: A positive charge gains kinetic energy when it moves from high potential to low potential but a negative charge gains kinetic energy when it moves from low potential to high potential. 18.26. Set Up: From Problem 18.25, for a particle with charge of magnitude e. The speed of light is An electron has mass and a proton has mass Solve: (a) (b) From Problem 18.25, the kinetic energy the particle gains is so gives electrons and protons the same kinetic energy. But the protons must be accelerated by a potential decrease whereas the electrons are acceler- ated by a potential increase. (c) 18.27. Set Up: and Solve: (a) so which is constant. Let the accelerating voltage. Then and Thus (b) so Reflect: If the charge is positive it is accelerated by a decrease in potential. If it is negative it is accelerated by an increase in potential.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
