Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points An electron is accelerated by a constant elec- tric field of magnitude 258 N / C. Find the magnitude of the acceleration of the electron. Correct answer: 4 . 53178 10 13 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : E = 258 N / C , q e = 1 . 6 10- 19 C , and m e = 9 . 109 10- 31 kg . The net force is q E = ma a = | q e | E m e = ( 1 . 6 10- 19 C ) (258 N / C) 9 . 109 10- 31 kg = 4 . 53178 10 13 m / s 2 . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the electrons speed after 6 . 34 10- 8 s, assuming it starts from rest. Correct answer: 2 . 87315 10 6 m / s. Explanation: Let : t = 6 . 34 10- 8 s . The final velocity is v f = a t since v i = 0 m / s, so v f = ( 4 . 53178 10 13 m / s 2 ) ( 6 . 34 10- 8 s ) = 2 . 87315 10 6 m / s...
