Textbook Problem

An ionized oxygen molecule (O+2) at point A has charge +e and moves at 2.00 × 103 m/s in the positive x-direction. A constant electric force in the negative x-direction slows the molecule to a stop at point B, a distance of 0.750 mm past A on the x-axis. Calculate (a) the x-component of the electric field and (b) the potential difference between points A and B.


To determine
The x component of electric field.


Given info: The speed of the molecule is 2.00×103m/s . The charge of the molecule is e. The displacement (d) is 0.750 mm.


Formula to calculate the potential difference is,


  • KE is the kinetic energy

The kinetic energy is,


  • m is the mass of the molecule.
  • v is the speed of the molecule.

From the above equations,


Substitute 1.6×1019C for e, 2.00×103m/s for v, 0.750 mm for d and 5.32×1026kg for m.



To determine
The potential difference between A and B.
