A proton has an initial speed of 3.9×105 m/s.

What potential difference is required to bring the proton to rest?

What potential difference is required to reduce the initial speed of the proton by a factor of 2?

What potential difference is required to reduce the initial kinetic energy of the proton by a factor of 2?

  • physics - ,

    Figure initial kinetic energy (1/2) m v^2
    (ok because speed well below that of light)

    volts * charge = energy = (1/2) m v^2

    I guess you can divide v by two and v^2 by 2
