## Minimum 1.7 V is necessary to stop the electron

The minimum K.E. = 2eV
[Since the electric potential of 2 V is reqd. to accelerate the electron to reach the plates]
the maximum K.E. = (2+1, 7)ev = 3.7 ev.
31. Given

Hence the minimum energy required to reach the charged plate must be = 22.6 eV
For maximum KE, the V must be an accelerating one.
