1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Point A is at an electrostatic potential of +1V relative to point B in a vacuum. An electron initially at rest at B moves to A. What is its velocity in m/s? 2. Relevant equations E = PE + KE PE= J/q * q KE = 0.5 mv^2 (where v = velocity) 3. The attempt at a solution Based on the definiton of an electron volt (eV), the energy of the electron is 1eV or 1.6E-19 Joules. In solving the first equation: 1.6E-19 J = 1 J/C * e- + 0.5mv^2 e-= 1.6E-19C based on my error (whatever that may be) 0 = 0.5mv^2 which means v=0, this doesn't seem correct. Any suggestions?
