N/C?

(b) What is the magnitude of the force on an electron between the plates?
N?

(c) How much work must be done on the electron to move it to the negative plate if it is initially positioned 2.94 mm from the positive plate?
J?

  1. 1 A) W = e*E*X
    X must be in meters to get the Work in Joules. e is the elctron chrge
    B) -W
    C) (1/2) m v^2 = W
    Solve for velocity v

    2. (a) E = V/d
    d must be in meters
    (b) e*E
    (c) It is 2.32 cm = 0.0232 m from the positive plate. Call that distance X'

    Work = e E x'
