Solve: acceleration: The maximum force and hence the maximum acceleration occurs just after they are released, when The acceleration of the proton is larger by a factor of speed: Conservation of energy says and so so the total kinetic energy of the two particles when they are far apart is Conservation of linear momentum says how this energy is divided between the proton and alpha particle. and The maximum acceleration occurs just after they are released. The maximum speed occurs after a long time. 18.81. Set Up: and The stored energy is Solve: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) Since the battery is disconnected, the charge Q on the capacitor stays constant. (a) so (b) The charge can’t change, so (c) Since Q doesn’t change, E doesn’t change and (d) Q doesn’t change and C changes by a factor of so the stored energy doubles and becomes Reflect: Since the stored energy increases, work must be done by the force that pulls the plates apart.

### What students are saying

• 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.
