Q. 233.7( 56 Votes )

An α - particle and a proton are accelerated through same potential difference. Find the ratio (vα/vp) of velocities acquired by two particles.

Answer :

Mass of proton = Mp = 1u

Mass of alpha particle = Ma = 4u

Charge on proton = Qp = + 1e

Charge on alpha particle =+ 2e

Now, we should use the formula,

Where P is liner momentum of body

q is charge on body, V is potential difference and m is mass of body.
