A proton is moving at 425 m/s. (a) How much work must be done on it to stop it?(answer in joules) (A proton has a mass of 1.67×10−27 kg.) (b) Assume the net braking force acting on it has magnitude 8.01×10−16 N and is directed opposite to its initial velocity. Over what distance must the force be applied(answer in meters)? Watch your negative signs in this problem.
