    1. A beam consisting of around 1.0 1015 electrons per second, each of mass 9.1 10-31 kg, paints pictures on the face of a TV tube. Assuming that the electrons are absorbed by the screen and exert an average net force on it of 0.9 10-7 N, what is their average speed at impact?

    2. Favg = p/t and p=mv

    3. These are the two formulas given, but I'm not sure how to solve for speed

    Try starting the problem, and writing down your thought process.

    Write and sketch about what you already know from what the problem tells you - then see if you can use that to work out what you don't yet know.
