The Trajectory of a Charge in an Electric Field
 
An charge with mass and charge is emitted from the origin, . A large, flat screen is located at. There is a target on the screen at
 y
position , where . In this problem, you will examine twodifferent ways that the charge might hit the target. Ignore gravity in this problem.
Part A
Assume that the charge is emitted with velocity in the positive
 x
direction. Between the origin and the screen,the charge travels through a constant electric field pointing in the positive
 y
direction. What should the magnitudeof the electric field be if the charge is to hit the target on the screen?
Hint A.1 How to approach the problem

Hint A.5Find
 Hint not displayed 
Express your answer in terms of , , , , and .
ANSWER:
=Correct
Part B
Now assume that the charge is emitted with velocity in the positive
 y
direction. Between the origin and thescreen, the charge travels through a constant electric field pointing in the positive
 x
direction. What should themagnitude of the electric field be if the charge is to hit the target on the screen?
Hint B.1 How to approach the problem

Hint B.4 Combine your results
 Hint not displayed 
 
Hint B.5Find
 Hint not displayed 
Express your answer in terms of , , , , and .
 
ANSWER:
=CorrectThe equations of motion for this part are identical to the equations of motion for the previous part, with andinterchanged. Thus it is no surprise that the answers to the two parts are also identical, with andinterchanged.An integral useful in the next problem can be found in Appendix B of our text
The Electric Field Produced by a Finite Charged Wire
 
A charged wire of negligible thickness has length units andhas a linear charge density . Consider the electric field at the point , a distance above the midpoint of thewire.
