PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp28_3.doc University of Florida Accelerating Charged Particles Example Problem:A particle with mass Mand charge qstarts from rest the point A. What is its speed at the point Bif VA=35Vand VB=10V(M = 1.8x10-5kg, q = 3x10-5C)? Solution:The total energy of the particle at Aand Bis EKEUqVEUMvqVAAAABBBBB=+=+=+0122. Setting EA= EB(energy conservation) yields(Note: the particle gains an amount of kinetic energy equal to its charge, q, time the change in
