Visualize: The figure shows the before-and-after pictorial representation. The proton has an initial speed vi 0 m/s and a final speed vf after traveling a distance d 2.0 mm. Solve: The proton loses potential energy and gains kinetic energy as it moves toward the negative plate. The potential energy U is defined as U U0 qEx, where x is the distance from the negative plate and U0 is the potential energy at the negative plate (at x 0 m). Thus, the change in the potential energy of the proton is Up Uf – Ui (U0 0 J) – (U0 qEd) qEd The change in the kinetic energy of the proton is K K f Ki 12 mvf2 12 mvi2 12 mvf2 The law of conservation of energy is K Up 0 J.

Having U U0 at the negative plate (with x 0 m) is completely arbitrary. We could have taken it to be zero. Note that only U, and not U, has physical consequences. 29.2. Model: The mechanical energy of the electron is conserved. A parallel-plate capacitor has a uniform electric field. Visualize: The figure shows the before-and-after pictorial representation. The electron has an initial speed vi 0 m/s and a final speed vf after traveling a distance d 1.0 mm. Solve: The electron loses potential energy and gains kinetic energy as it moves toward the positive plate. The potential energy U is defined as U U0 qEx, where x is the distance from the negative plate and U0 is the potential energy at the negative plate (at x 0 m). Thus, the change in the potential energy of the electron is Ue Uf – Ui (U0 qEd) – (U0 0 J) qEd The change in the kinetic energy of the electron is K K f Ki 12 mvf2 12 mvi2 12 mvf2 Now, the law of conservation of mechanical energy gives K U 0 J. This means 1 2 2qEd m vf mvf2 qEd 0 J 2 1.60 1019 C 20,000 N/C 1.0 103 m 9.111031 kg 2.7 106 m/s Assess: Note that Ue qEd is the change in the potential energy of the electron. It is negative because q e for the electron. Thus, the potential energy becomes more negative as d increases, that is, the potential energy of the electron decreases with an increase in d (or x). 29.5. Model: The charges are point charges.

Model: Energy is conserved. The potential energy is determined by the electric potential. Visualize: The figure shows a before-and-after pictorial representation of an electron moving through a potential difference. Because the negative electron gains speed as it travels, it moves into a region of higher potential (U K). Solve: The potential energy of charge q is U qV.

Model: Energy is conserved. The potential energy is determined by the electric potential. Visualize: The figure shows a before-and-after pictorial representation of an electron moving through a potential difference. Solve: (a) Because the electron is a negative charge and it slows down as it travels, it must be moving from a region of higher potential to a region of lower potential.

The negative sign with V verifies that the electron moves from a higher potential region to a lower potential 29.19. Model: The electric potential difference between the plates is determined by the uniform electric field in the parallel-plate capacitor. Solve: (a) The potential difference VC across a capacitor of spacing d is related to the electric field inside by E VC VC Ed 1.0 105 V/m 0.0020 m 200 V d (b) The electric field of a capacitor is related to the surface charge density by E Q A 0 0 Q 0 AE 8.85 1012 C2 /N m 2 4.0 104 m 2 1.0 105 V/m 3.5 10 10 C 29.20. Model: The electric potential between the plates of a parallel-plate capacitor is determined by the uniform electric field between the plates.

Assess: Note that the units in part (a) are N m/C. But Exercise 29.17 showed that 1 N/C 1 V/m, so 1 N m/C 1 V. We also see that the potential difference across a parallel-plate capacitor is directly proportional to the plate separation. 29.23. Model: The charge is a point charge. Visualize: Please refer to Figure EX29.23. Solve: (a) The electric potential of the point charge q is V 2.0 109 C 18.0 N m 2 /C 1 q 9.0 109 N m 2 /C2 4 0 r r r For points A and B, r 0.010 m.

Model: The net potential is the sum of the scalar potentials due to each charge. Visualize: Solve: Let the point on the x-axis where the electric potential is zero be at a distance x from the origin. At this point, V1 V2 0 V. This means 3.0 109 C 1.0 109 C 1 0 V x 3 x 4.0 cm 0 cm 4 0 x x 4.0 cm Either x 3 x 4.0 cm 0 cm, or x 3 4.0 cm x 0 cm. In the first case, x 6.0 cm and, in the second case, x 3 cm. That is, we have two points on the x-axis where the potential is zero. 29.37. Model: While the net potential is the sum of the potentials due to each charge, the net electric field is the vector sum of the electric fields. Visualize: The charge Q1 20.0 nC is at the origin. The charge Q2 10.0 nC is 15.0 cm to the right of the charge Q1 on the xaxis. Solve: (a) As the pictorial representation shows, the point P on the x-axis where the electric field is zero can only be on the right side of the charge Q2, that is, at x 15.0 cm. At this point E1 E2 , so we have 1 20.0 109 C 1 10.0 10 9 C x2 2(x – 15.0 cm)2 2 4 0 x 4 0 x 15.0 cm 2 x2 (60.0 cm)x 450 cm2 0 x 60.0 cm 3600 cm2 1800 cm 2 2 x 51.2 cm and 8.8 cm. The root x 8.8 cm is not possible physically. So, the electric fields cancel out at x 51.2 cm.

Model: Energy is conserved. The potential energy is determined by the electric potential. Visualize: Please refer to Figure P29.42. Solve: The proton at point A is at a potential of 30 V and its speed is 50,000 m/s. At point B, the proton is at a potential of 10 V and we are asked to find its speed. Clearly, the proton moves into a lower potential region, so its speed will increase. The conservation of energy equation Kf Uf Ki Ui is 1 2 vf mvf2 e 10 V 12 m 50,000 m/s e 30 V 2 50,000 m/s 2 2 1.60 1019 C 40 V 1.67 1027 kg 1.01105 m/s Assess: The speed of the proton is higher, as expected. 29.45. Model: Energy is conserved. The proton’s potential energy inside the capacitor can be found from the capacitor’s potential difference. Visualize: Please refer to Figure P29.45. Solve: (a) The electric potential at the midpoint of the capacitor is 250 V. This is because the potential inside a parallel-plate capacitor is V Es where s is the distance from the negative electron. The proton has charge q e and its potential energy at a point where the capacitor’s potential is V is U eV. The proton will gain potential energy U eV e(250 V) 1.60 1019 C (250 V) 4.00 1017 J if it moves all the way to the positive plate. This increase in potential energy comes at the expense of kinetic energy which is K 12 mv 2 1 2 1.67 10 27 kg 200,000 m/s 3.34 1017 J 2 This available kinetic energy is not enough to provide for the increase in potential energy if the proton is to reach the positive plate. Thus the proton does not reach the plate because K < U. (b) The energy-conservation equation Kf Uf Ki Ui is 1 2 vf vi2 mvf2 qVf 12 mvi2 qVi 12 mvf2 12 mvi2 q Vi Vf 2q Vi Vf m 29.46.

At that speed, relativity must be taken into account. 29.47. Model: Mechanical energy is conserved. Visualize: Solve: (a) Both gravitational and electric potential energy are involved. The electric potential between the plates is V = Es, where s is measured from the more negative plate. The electric field between the plates is E V 3.0 106 V 1.00 106 V/m. d 3.0 m Conservation of energy is used to find the height.

The electric potential is now zero at the top plate and positive at the bottom plate. Does the charge make it all the way to the top plate? If we assume it does not and obtain a height more than 3.0 m then we will know that it does.

Model: Energy is conserved. Visualize: The alpha particle is initially at rest (vi alpha 0 m/s) at the surface of the thorium nucleus. The potential energy of the alpha particle is U i alpha . After the decay, the alpha particle is far away from the thorium nucleus, Uf alpha 0 J, and moving with speed vf alpha . Solve: Initially, the alpha particle has potential energy and no kinetic energy. As the alpha particle is detected in the laboratory, the alpha particle has kinetic energy but no potential energy. Energy is conserved, so Kf alpha Uf alpha Ki alpha Ui alpha.

From the momentum conservation equation Pafter Pbefore we get mAvA mBvB 0 kg m/s (2.0 g)vA (1.0 g)vB 0 kg m/s vB 2vA Substituting this expression into the energy-conservation equation, vA2 0.5 2vA 0.009 m2 /s2 3vA2 0.009 m 2 /s 2 2 Solving these equations, we get vA –0.0548 m/s and vB 0.110 m/s. Thus the speeds are 0.055 m/s for A and 0.110 m/s for B.
