Find the speed of the electron after it leaves the region of uniform electric field. The elementary charge is 1 . 6 × 10 19 C and the mass of the electron is 9 . 11 × 10 31 kg. Correct answer: 2 . 3707 × 10 6 m / s. Explanation: Let : e = 1 . 6 × 10 19 C , m e = 9 . 11 × 10 31 kg , E = 800 N / C , and Δ x = 2 cm = 0 . 02 m . Because of the constant acceleration, v 2 = v 2 0 + 2 a Δ x . Since v 0 = 0 and a = F net m e = e E m e , v = radicalbigg 2 e E Δ x m e = radicalBigg 2 (1 . 6 × 10 19 C) (800 N / C) 9 . 11 × 10 31 kg × 0 . 02 m = 2 . 3707 × 10 6 m / s . 002 10.0 points A particle of mass 0 . 000104 g and charge 47 mC moves in a region of space where the electric field is uniform and is 4 . 1 N / C in the x direction and zero in the y and z direction. If the initial velocity of the particle is given by v y = 3 × 10 5 m / s, v x = v z = 0, what is the speed of the particle at 0 . 4 s? Correct answer: 7 . 99568 × 10 5 m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 0 . 000104 g = 1 . 04 × 10 7 kg , E x = 4 . 1 N / C , E y = E z = 0 , v y = 3 × 10 5 m / s , v x = v z = 0 , and t = 0 . 4 s . According to Newton’s second law and the definition of an electric field, vector F = mvectora = q vector E . Since the electric field has only an x compo- nent, the particle accelerates only in the x direction a x = q E x m . To determine the x component of the final velocity, v xf , use the kinematic relation v xf = v xi + a ( t f - t i ) = a t f . Since t i = 0 and v xi = 0 , v xf = q E x t f m v xf = (0 . 047 C) (4 . 1 N / C)(0 . 4 s) (1 . 04 × 10 7 kg) = 7 . 41154 × 10 5 m / s . No external force acts on the particle in the y direction so v yi = v yf = 3 × 10 5 m / s. Hence the final speed is given by v f = radicalBig v 2 yf + v 2 xf = bracketleftbigg ( 3 × 10 5 m / s ) 2 + ( 7 . 41154 × 10 5 m / s ) 2 bracketrightbigg 1 / 2 = 7 . 99568 × 10 5 m / s . Note: This is analogous to a particle in a gravitational field with the coordinates ro- tated clockwise by π 2 (90 ).

### 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.
