Answer to Question #1844 in Mechanics | Relativity for matt sturm
A net force of 1.6×10−15 N acts on an electron over a displacement of 5.0 cm, in the same direction as the net force. (a) What is the change in kinetic energy of the electron? (b) If the electron was initially at rest, what is the speed of the electron? An electron has a mass of 9.1×10−31 kg. answer part a) in joules and part b) in meters per second.
a) the change in kinetic energy equals to the work done by the force (if the potential energy remains the same): A = F s = 1.6×10−15[N] * 0.05 [m] = 0.8×10−16J.
b) if the electron was initially at rest, the speed of the electron can be found from the expression A = mv2/2: v = √(2A/m) = √(2*0.8×10−16J/9.1×10−31) = 0.17×1015m/s
Hi Expert, so I wasn't able to try the new version because they closed of the submission portal. Oh well,
but I want to give you my sincerest thank you for helping me throughout this assignment! Honestly, you are an absolute legend! Your line by line explanation was superb and honestly helped me understand most of the concept I learnt during my semester better than my own lecturer! Thank you for consistently helping and being persistent with the versions!
You've honestly been the greatest help and I would have been so lost if it wasn't without your expertise!
So thank you once again!
