Asked Dec 28, 2019

Each of the electrons in a particle beam has a kinetic energy of 1.60 x 10-17 J. (a) What is the magnitude of the uniform electric field (pointing in the direction of the electrons’ movement) that will stop these electrons in a distance of 10.0 cm? (b) How long will it take to stop the electrons? (c) After the electrons stop, what will they do? Explain.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given data:

 Kinetics energy of the electron = 1.60 x 10-17 J

Distance, x = 10.0 cm = 0.10 m
