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

I need to estimate the energy loss of electrons before they reach a detector, but I am unsure how to do it. I think I am supposed to integrate the stopping power function over the total distance but I can't solve the equation...

2. Relevant equations

Stopping power=-dE/dx

Energy loss=∫-dE/dx (I think)

3. The attempt at a solution

Is the solution - e*x?

Any help is appreciated!
