A particle with a charge of 3.0 µC is located at rest 5.0 meters from a proton. a) Determine the magnitude of the electric field at the proton's location created by the 3.0 µC charge. b) Determine the initial acceleration of the proton after it is released from rest.
b.) F= ma
The Attempt at a Solution
F = 9 x 10^9 x q1 x q2 / d^2
F = 9 x 10^9 x 3 x 10^-6 x 1.6 x 10^-19 / 25 = 1.73 x 10^-16 N
