Question

An electron with an initial velocity v0 = 1.10×105 m/s enters a region 1.0 cm long where it is electrically accelerated (see the figure). It emerges with velocity v = 4.90×106 m/s. What was its acceleration, assumed constant? (Such a process occurs in the electron gun in a cathode-ray tube, used in television receivers and oscilloscopes.)
