Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A proton has an initial velocity of 2 . 63 10 7 m / s in the horizontal direction. It enters a uniform electric field of 15600 N / C directed vertically. Ignoring gravitational effects, find the time it takes the proton to travel 0 . 06 m horizon- tally. Correct answer: 2 . 28137 ns. Explanation: Let : v x = 2 . 63 10 7 m / s , E = 15600 N / C , and x = 0 . 06 m . The electric field vector E is in the vertical ( y ) di- rection, so the electric force vector F elec = q vector E ex- erted by the field on the proton is also in the y-direction, with no component in the x- direction. Hence, the field can exert no force on the proton in the x-direction. This implies a constant speed in the x-direction. Conse- quently, x = v x t t = x v x = . 06 m 2 . 63 10 7 m / s 10 9 ns s = 2 . 28137 ns . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points What is the vertical displacement of the pro- ton after the electric field acts on it for that time? Correct answer: 0 . 00388864 mm. Explanation: In the vertical direction, the proton experi- ences an electric force with magnitude F elec = q E = ma y a y = q E m = ( 1 . 60218 10- 19 C ) (15600 N / C) 1 . 67262 10- 27 kg = 1 . 4943 10 12 m / s 2 . The vertical dispacement is y = v t + 1 2 a t 2 = 1 2 a t 2 since v o = 0, so y y = 1 2 ( 1 . 4943 10 12 m / s 2 ) (2 . 28137 10- 9 s) 2 1000 mm 1 m = . 00388864 mm ....
