Please Help with Practice question!!!
An electrically charged particle accelerates uniformly from rest to speed v while traveling a distance x.
a) Show the acceleration of the particle is a= v^2/2x.
b) If the particle starts from rest and reaches a speed of 1.8 x 10^7 m/s over a distance of 0.10m, show that its acceleration is 1.6 x 10^15 m/s^2.

you know \[v ^{2}u ^{2}=2as\] and here s=x and u=0 since it started from rest so we have: \[v ^{2}0=2ax\] \[a=v ^{2}/2x\]
