See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given Information

We have to find the speed, in m/s, of a proton after being accelerated from rest through a potential difference.

Step 2: Simplify

Energy of the proton in the potential difference is

The mass of the proton is . So if the velocity of the proton is then we have

So the velocity of the proton will be .
