Particle Speed And Acceleration ?

  1. Feb 14, 2014 #1
    Hallo Physics Forum

    I have a question, if you have a particle( a charged particle ) in a vacuum tube with applied voltage
    then how can you calculate the speed and acceleration it will get in the tube when theres applied voltage to the tube

    You can calculate its final speed (just use energy conservation), but not its acceleration which depends on the length of the tube.

    If you or anyone knows have to calculate the acceleration in a tube with length x
    It whould be very usefull

    Did you even look at the link I gave you? You have all the kinematical equations that you need to find the acceleration!!
