Textbook Problem

An electron is released from rest in a uniform electric field. Determine whether the following quantities increase, decrease, or remain unchanged as the electron moves. Indicate your answers with I (increase), D (decrease), or U (unchanged), respectively. (a) The electric potential at the electron’s location (b) The electron’s associated electric potential energy (c) Its kinetic energy (d) Its total energy.

(a)

To determine
The electric potential at electron’s location.

Explanation

A particle with negative charge moves from lower potential to higher potential. Therefore, as the electron mo...

(b)

To determine
The electric potential energy.

(c)

To determine
The kinetic energy.

(d)

To determine
The total energy.
