in an experiment in space, one proton is held fixed and another proton is released from rest a distance of 2.50 mm away. a. what is the initial acceleration of the proton after it is released? b. sketch qualitatively the acceleration-time & velocity-time graphs of the released proton's motion. /*badly needed ASAP*/ ty! @Physics

    well, the force between them is q1q2/r^2 so, calculate the force between them by putting the values of charge of proton divide the value of force by proton's mass u will get the answer

    ummm does proton 2 have a reacting force against proton 1? just wondering because i'm quite new to this..sorry for sounding noobs :s

    well, there will be electrostatic force between them

    by the way, are the graphs of the released proton constant?

    graphs of released protons? means?

    no, no-- those will not be constant

    as the distance will change, the force as well as acceleration and velocity will decrease too :)

    sorry, bro! as the distance will increase, the acceleration will decrease, but it will be still positive. so, velocity will increase. :)
