Chapter 16, Problem 10P
Textbook Problem

On planet Tehar, the free-fall acceleration is the same as that on the Earth, but there is also a strong downward electric field that is uniform close to the planet’s surface. A 2.00-kg ball having a charge of 5.00 μC is thrown upward at a speed of 20.1 m/s. It hits the ground after an interval of 4.10 s. What is the potential difference between the starting point and the top point of the trajectory?
