d = 2v0t + apt 2 (1) We can solve Equation (1) for the initial speed v0 of the proton, but, first, we must
determine the time t and the acceleration ap of the proton . Since the proton strikes the
negative plate at the same instant the electron strikes the positive plate, we can use the
motion of the electron to determine the time t. Chapter 19 Problems For the electron, 1
2 1051 d = 1 aet 2 , where we have taken into account the fact that the electron is
2 released from rest. Solving this expression for t we have t = d / ae . Substituting this expression into Equation (1), we have
d = 2v0 d ap + d ae ae (2) The accelerations can be found by noting that the magnitudes of the forces on the electron
and proton are equal, since these particles have the same magnitude of charge. The force on
the electron is F = eE = eV / d , and the acceleration of the electron is, therefore, ae = F

speed of the proton:

v0 = 1 9.11× 10 –31 kg (1.60 ×10 –19C)(175 V)

Therefore, the total energy (kinetic energy plus electric potential energy) is conserved as the
particles move apart. In addition, the net external force acting on the system of two particles
is zero (the electric force that each particle exerts on the other is an internal force). Thus, the
total linear momentum of the system is also conserved. We will use the conservation of
energy and the conservation of linear momentum to find the initial separation of the
particles. 1052 ELECTRIC POTENTIAL ENERGY AND THE ELECTRIC POTENTIAL SOLUTION For two points, A and B, along the motion, the conservation of energy is

ANSWERS TO FOCUS ON CONCEPTS QUESTIONS
1. 1.5 A
2. (c) Ohm’s law states that the voltage V is directly proportional to the current I, according to
V = IR, where R is the resistance. Thus, a plot of voltage versus current is a straight line that
passes through the origin.
3. (e) Since both wires are made from the same material, the resistivity ρ is the same for each.
L
The resistance R is given by R = ρ
(Equation 20.3), where L is the length and A is the
A
crosssectional area of the wire. With twice the length and onehalf the radius (onefourth

5. (a) Power P is the current I times the voltage V or P = IV (Equation 20.6a). However, since
Ohm’s law applies to a resistance R, the power is also P = I 2 R (Equation 20.6b) and
V2
(Equation 20.6c). Therefore, all three of the changes specified leave the power

unchanged.

8. (d) According to Ohm’s law, the voltage across the resistance R1 is V1 = IR1 . The two
resistors are connected in series, and their equivalent resistance is, therefore, R1 + R2.

According to Ohm’s law, the current in the circuit is I =
