(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The potential difference between two parallel plates is 529 V. An alpha particle with mass of 6.64 kg and charge of 3.20 C is released from rest near the positive plate. What is the kinetic energy of the alpha particle when it reaches the other plate? The distance between the plates is 19.4 cm.

2. Relevant equations

[tex] U_{initial}=K_{Final}[/tex]

[tex] U=q_{0}E\DeltaR[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

So I am trying to find E now so I can plug that in for U. E=V/distance right? so

[tex] E= 1058/.194[/tex]?
