(1) and Newtons laws to develop the appropriate differential equations and solve them, subject to the initial conditions at t = 0: v = 3 10 5 a x m/s at the origin. At t = 3 s, find: a) the position P ( x, y, z ) of the charge: The force on the charge is given by F = q E , and Newtons second law becomes: F = m a = m d 2 z dt 2 = q E = ( . 3 10 6 )(30 a z ) describing motion of the charge in the z direction. The initial velocity in x is constant, and so no force is applied in that direction. We integrate once: dz dt = v z = qE m t + C 1 The initial velocity along z , v z (0) is zero, and so C 1 = 0. Integrating a second time yields the z coordinate: z = qE 2 m t 2 + C 2 The charge lies at the origin at t = 0, and so C 2 = 0. Introducing the given values, we find z = ( . 3 10 6 )(30) 2 3 10 16 t 2 = 1 . 5 10 10 t 2 m At t = 3 s, z = (1 . 5 10 10 )(3 10 6 ) 2 = . 135cm. Now, considering the initial constant velocity in x , the charge in 3 s attains an x coordinate of x = vt = (3 10 5 )(3 10 6 ) = . 90 m. In summary, at t = 3 s we have P ( x, y, z ) = ( . 90 , , . 135) . b) the velocity, v : After the first integration in part a , we find v z = qE m t = (3 10 10 )(3 10 6 ) = 9 10 4 m / s Including the intial x-directed velocity, we finally obtain v = 3 10 5 a x 9 10 4 a z m / s . c) the kinetic energy of the charge: Have K . E . = 1 2 m | v | 2 = 1 2 (3 10 16 )(1 . 13 10 5 ) 2 = 1 . 5 10 5 J 9.2. A point charge, Q = . 3 C and m = 3 10 16 kg, is moving through the field B = 30 a z mT. Make use of Eq. (2) and Newtons laws to develop the appropriate differential equations, and solve them, subject to the initial condition at t = 0, v = 3 10 5 m/s at the origin. Solve these equations (perhaps with the help of an example given in Section 7.5) to evaluate at t = 3 s: a) the position P ( x, y, z ) of the charge; b) its velocity; c) and its kinetic energy: We begin by visualizing the problem. Using F = q v B , we find that a positive charge moving along positive a x , would encounter the z-directed B field and be deected into the negative y direction. 1 9.2 (continued) Motion along negative y through the field would cause further deection into the negative x direction. We can construct the differential equations for the forces in x and in y as follows: F x a x = m dv x dt a x = qv y a y B a z = qBv y a x F y a y = m dv y dt a y = qv x a x B a z = qBv x a y or dv x dt = qB m v y (1) and dv y dt = qB m v x (2) To solve these equations, we first differentiate (2) with time and substitute (1), obtaining: d 2 v y dt 2 = qB m dv x dt = qB m 2 v y Therefore, v y = A sin( qBt/m ) + A cos( qBt/m ). However, at t = 0, v y = 0, and so A = 0, leaving...
