Van de Graaf generator

  1. Feb 1, 2010 #1
    This is on my syllabus for my physics synoptic exam on tuesday so help would be much appreciated and reads as follows.

    Explain how the Van de Graaf generator leads to the production of MeV particles.

    NB this is not an exam question or homework - would just like an explanation
