An electron has an initial speed of
2.95 × 105 m/s.If it undergoes an acceleration of 2.7 × 1014 m/s^2, how long will it take to reach a speed of 5.94 × 105 m/s?

1. luckily 6*10^5 is much less than light speed of 3*10^8 so not a relativity problem

v = Vi + a t
5.94 * 10^5 = 2.95*10^5 + 2.7*10^14 t
divide by 10^5

5.94 = 2.95 + 2.7*10^9 t

2.7 * 10^9 t = 2.99

t = 1.107 * 10^-9 seconds
