An electron acquires 7.45 x 10^-17 J of kinetic energy when it is accelerated by an electric field from plate A to plate B. (a) What is the potential difference between the plates and (b) Which plate is at the higher potential?
`\DeltaKE = 7.45\times10^(-17)\text(J)`
`q_e = -1.602\times10^(-19)\text(C) `
Due to the conservation of energy, the change in kinetic energy came from the change in potential energy due...
