4. Let us attempt to achieve orbit-like motion using electric fields.
(a) Calculate how large v needs to be to balance out the Coulomb attraction. Assume M>>m so
that the larger ball doesn't move and cause binary motion. Also assume ɛg.
(b) Plot and label the vertical and horizontal position of the smaller ball over time, taking the center
of the larger ball as the origin. Pay special attention to labelling amplitude and period. Hint: the
initial condition below shows the ball at x = ro, y = 0.

Step 1

Since you have asked multiple question, we will solve the question number 6 for you. If you
want any specific question to be solved then please specify the question number or post
only that question.

 

The formula for the electrostatic force acting on a charged particle is:

Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 1

The only force acting on the charged particle along the x-direction is electrostatic force. Therefore, from Newton’s second law of motion.

Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 2

 

Step 2

In the expression of acceleration, all the terms are constant. Therefore, the acceleration acting on the charged particle will be constant. Initially, the direction of acceleration is opposite to the direction of velocity. Therefore, the particle velocity will decrease until the velocity reaches zero, after that the velocity reverses its dire...
