Problem 16.1

A proton is released at the origin in a constant electric fi eld of 850 N/C acting in the positive x- direction. Find the change in the electric potential energy associated with the proton after it travels to x _ 2.5 m. (a) 3.4 _ 10_16 J (b) _3.4 _ 10_16 J (c) 2.5 _ 10_16 J (d) _2.5 _ 10_16 J (e) _1.6 _ 10_19 J

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Free Fall Motion:  Moving object are only influenced by gravity  Acceleration due to gravity (g) is constant (+9.81 m/s ) o g is always positive o Gravity always pulls objects downward  g is independent of mass  If there is no resistance, then all object will fall with the same acceleration Object moving upward Object moving downward Acceleration= -g Acceleration=g v = v – gt v v + gt f i f = i 2 2 y f y i +vi – ½ gt yf =y i +vi + ½ gt v f=– igΔy vf=v +2 iΔy
