An alpha particle (alpha), which is the same as a helium-4 nucleus, is momentarily at rest in a region of space occupied by an electric field. The particle then begins to move. Find the speed of the alpha particle after it has moved through a potential difference of −3.45×10−3 V.

The charge and the mass of an alpha particle are q_a = 3.20×10−19 C and m_a = 6.68×10−27 kg, respectively.

What is the final velocity of the alpha particle, v_af?
