The electron gun in an old TV picture tube accelerates electrons between two parallel plates 1.4 cm apart with a 21 kV potential difference between them. The electrons enter through a small hole in the negative plate, accelerate, then exit through a small hole in the positive plate. Assume that the holes are small enough not to affect the electric field or potential.
With what speed does an electron exit the electron gun if its entry speed is close to zero?
