Unformatted text preview: 22 53. We take the positive direction to be to the right in the figure. The acceleration of the proton is ap = eE/mp and the acceleration of the electron is ae = –eE/me, where E is the magnitude of the electric field, mp is the mass of the proton, and me is the mass of the electron. We take the origin to be at the initial position of the proton. Then, the 1
coordinate of the proton at time t is x = 2 a p t 2 and the coordinate of the electron is 1
x = L + 2 ae t 2 . They pass each other when their coordinates...
