Textbook Problem

Choose the words that make each statement correct, (i) After being released from rest in a uniform electric field, a proton will move [(a) in the same direction as; (b) opposite the direction of] the electric field to regions of [(c) higher, (d) lower] electric potential, (ii) After being released from rest in a uniform electric field, an electron will move [(c) in the same direction as; [0 opposite the direction of] the electric field to regions of [(g) higher; (h) lower] electric potential.

(a)

To determine
The direction of motion of proton.

Explanation

The electric field lines travel from positive to negative charge. Therefore, when a proton is released from rest in a uniform electric field, it will be attracted towards the negative charge. Hence, it will move along the direction of electric field...

(b)

To determine
The direction of motion of electron.
