Textbook Problem

A Van de Graaff generator is charged so that a proton at its surface accelerates radially outward at 1.52 × 1012 m/s3. Find (a) the magnitude of the electric force on the proton at that instant and (b) the magnitude and direction of the electric field at the surface of the generator.

(a)

To determine
The electric force on proton.

Explanation

Given info: The acceleration of the proton (a) is 1.52×1012ms2 . Mass of proton (m) is 1.67×1027kg .

Formula to calculate the electric force on proton is,

F=ma

Substitute 1.67×1027kg for m and 1.52×1012ms2 for a

(b)

To determine
The magnitude and direction of electric field.
