An electron is fired at a speed of \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}={5.6}\times{10}^{{6}}\) m/s and at an angle of \(\displaystyle\theta_{{0}}=–{45}^{\circ}\) between two parallel conductingplates that are D=2.0 mm apart, as in Figure. Ifthe potential difference between the plates is \(\displaystyle\triangle{V}={100}\ {V}\), determine (a) how close d the electron will get to the bottom plate and (b) where the electron will strike the top plate.

Initial speed of the electron is \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}={5.6}\times{10}^{{6}}\) m/s and \(\displaystyle\theta_{{0}}=-{45}^{\circ}\)
The distance betweeen two parallel conducting plates is \(\displaystyle{D}={2.0}\ {m}{m}={2.0}\cdot{10}^{{-{3}}}\ {m}\)
The potential difference between the plates is \(\displaystyle\triangle{V}={100}\ {V}\)
Now the direction of the electric field is along the Y-direction.
Now the electric field strength can be calculated by using the formula
\(\displaystyle{E}_{{y}}={\frac{{\triangle{V}}}{{{D}}}}={\frac{{{100}}}{{{2}\times{10}^{{-{3}}}}}}={5000}\ \frac{{N}}{{m}}\)
The acceleration of the electron is calculated as
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{\left({5000}\right)}{\left({1.6}\times{10}^{{-{19}}}\right)}}}{{{9.1}\times{10}^{{-{31}}}}}}={8.78}\times{10}^{{{15}}}\ \frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\)
(a) The initial velocity v0 can beresolved into two components.
Horizontal component is \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}{\cos{\theta}}\)
Vertical component is \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}{\sin{\theta}}\)
At the bottom plate the final velocity of the electron is zero.
That means \(\displaystyle{v}_{{y}}={0}\)
Now the vertical displacement of the electron is calculated byusing the formula
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{-{\left[{\left(-{5.6}\times{10}^{{6}}\ \frac{{m}}{{s}}\right)}{\sin{{45}}}\right]}^{{2}}}}{{{2}{\left({8.78}\times{10}^{{{15}}}\right)}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=-{0.89}\) mm
Now the minimum distance above the bottom plate is then
b) The time for electron to travel from the point O to the upperplate is ccalculated as \(\displaystyle\triangle{y}={v}_{{{0}{y}}}{t}+{\frac{{{1}}}{{{2}}}}{a}_{{y}}{t}^{{2}}\)

The dominant form of drag experienced by vehicles (bikes, cars,planes, etc.) at operating speeds is called form drag. Itincreases quadratically with velocity (essentially because theamount of air you run into increase with v and so does the amount of force you must exert on each small volume of air). Thus
where A is the cross-sectional area of the vehicle and \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}}\) is called the coefficient of drag.
Part A:
Consider a vehicle moving with constant velocity \(\displaystyle\vec{{{v}}}\). Find the power dissipated by form drag.
Express your answer in terms of \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}},{A},\) and speed v.
Part B:
A certain car has an engine that provides a maximum power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{0}}\). Suppose that the maximum speed of thee car, \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}\), is limited by a drag force proportional to the square of the speed (as in the previous part). The car engine is now modified, so that the new power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}\) is 10 percent greater than the original power (\(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}={110}\%{P}_{{0}}\)).
Assume the following:
The top speed is limited by air drag.
The magnitude of the force of air drag at these speeds is proportional to the square of the speed.
By what percentage, \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{v}_{{1}}-{v}_{{0}}}}{{{v}_{{0}}}}}\), is the top speed of the car increased?
Express the percent increase in top speed numerically to two significant figures.

Two light sources of identical strength are placed 8 m apart. An object is to be placed at a point P on a line ? parallel to the line joining the light sources and at a distance d meters from it (see the figure). We want to locate P on ? so that the intensity of illumination is minimized. We need to use the fact that the intensity of illumination for a single source is directly proportional to the strength of the source and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source.

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.
