A particle having mass m and charge q moves along a line under the action of an electric field E = alpha – beta *x where alpha and beta are positive constants and x is the distance from a point where the particle was initially at rest. Then, for an observer moving with acceleration q*alpha/m(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.) The motion of the particle is simple oscillatory

2.) The amplitude of the particle is alpha/beta

3.) The mean position of the particle is at x = alpha/beta

4.) The maximum acceleration of the particle is q*alpha/m
