# What is its speed at point B?

0

A small particle has charge -2.90uC and mass 2.00×10−4kg . It moves from point A, where the electric potential is VA= 200 V, to point B, where the electric potential VB= 860 V is greater than the potential at point A . The electric force is the only force acting on the particle. The particle has a speed of 3.10 m/s at point A.

A) What is its speed at point B ?

B) Is it moving faster or slower at B than at A?

Faster or Slower

Charge = q = -2.90*10^-6 C

Mass = m = 2.00×10−4kg

Initial velocity = u =3.10 m/s

Final velocity = y

Change in kinetic energy = change in potential energy

(1/2)mv^2 – (1/2)mu^2 = q (Va – Vb)

multiply by 2 abd divide by m on both sides

v^2 – u^2 = 2q (Va – Vb) /m

v^2 = u^2 + 2q (Vb – Va) /m

v = sq rt [ u^2 + 2q (Va – Vb) /m ]

v = sq rt [ 3.1^2 – 2*2.90*10^-6 (200 -860) / 2.00×10−4 ]

v = sq rt [ 9.61 + 5.80*10^-6 (660 ) / 2.00×10−4 ]

v = sq rt [ 9.61 + 5.80*10^-2 (330 ) ]

v = sq rt [ 9.61 + 19.14 ]

v = sq rt [ 28.75 ]

v = 5.361 m/s

A) Its speed at point B is 5.361 m/s

B)It is moving faster at B than at A
