Question: a pair of closely spaced parallel conducting plates charged with...

Question details

A pair of closely spaced parallel conducting plates, charged with equal and opposite electric charges, produces a uniform electric field in the region between them. In designing a cutting-edge device that will revolutionize the electronics industry, you set up such a pair of plates with a separation of 0.953 mm between them and charge them so that the direction of the electric field in their interior region is from plate A to plate B. Your idea requires that electrons, when released from rest at one of the plates, reach the other plate at the speed of 1.85% of the speed of light. (The speed of light is c-3.00 x 108 m/s) At which plate should the electrons be released? O Either O Cannot be determined What must the strength of the electric field be? Number N/ C
