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:- \[v ^{2}-0=2ax\] \[a=v ^{2}/2x\]

    yup that'w what you get after putting in the values x=s and u=0 in more general eqn \[v ^{2}-u ^{2}=2as\]
