41. We take the positive direction to be to the right in the fgure. The acceleration oF the proton isap=eE/mpand the acceleration oF the electron isae=−eE/me,whereEis the magnitude oF the electricfeld,mpis the mass oF the proton, andmeis the mass oF the electron. We take the origin to be atthe initial position oF the proton. Then, the coordinate oF the proton at timetisx=12apt2and thecoordinate oF the electron is
