Bare free charges do not remain stationary when close together. To illustrate this, calculate the acceleration of two isolated protons separated by 2.00 nm (a typical distance between gas atoms). Explicitly show hou you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for electrostatics.

well, connecting rod. My name is Kevin Chirac. So here we have. We're looking at the charges to bear charges those that aren't encumbered, that are allowed to float around. And they have a distance between them of two nanometers, which I'm going to rewrite as two times 10 to the negative nine meters. And then I have a charge of each of these electrons, these charges being 1.6 times 10 to the negative 19th 2 alarms were trying to calculate what the acceleration would be under all these conditions. So we also have the mass of the electron at 1.6 times 10 to the native 100.7 kilograms. Let's let's begin. Just but try putting out the force. We know that the force is going people to pay times Q. One Q two over R squared. Which is this going to be the exact same terms of the electron? In either case, we'd say this is good people. Okay, times she'll e squared over r squared, you know, that's 8.9 times 10 to the ninth, and then the q e. We have over here on the left is 1.6 times 10 to the negative 19 squared, divided by Don't forget about the radius two times 10 to the negative Ninth. I swear what you get when you calculate all this is that's going to be equal to 5.696 times, 10 to the negative 11th news It just appeared like a very, very small force. But when you replace this force on the left with the A, that we know is goingto be what's affecting one of the charges and then we divide over the mass that's actually going to cause this this acceleration be quite large. It'll be 3.56 I was 10 to the 16th meters per second squared, which is just a very, very large number for acceleration. So the charges were moving quite quickly. I hope you enjoy this video. If you did
