Electron Volt

What is the speed of a 300-eV proton? What is the speed of a 300-eV electron?

Key: 2.40x10^5, 1.03x10^7

Solution Preview

Assume that E = (1/2)mv^2 (meaning no relativistic effects)

v = (2E/m)^(1/2)

so then ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides step-by-step calculations for solving the speed of an electron and a proton.
