Short Answer

An antiproton (same properties as a proton except that ) is moving in the combined electric and magnetic fields of FIGURE. What are the magnitude and direction of the antiproton’s acceleration at this instant?

Acceleration, upward

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step1: Magnetic attraction (part a)

Due to the electrical field , the electrical force is exerted on the charge, and it's given by

Because antiproton charge is negative, the electrical field exerts an electrical force during a downward direction.

Equation of magnetic attraction,

Step2: Magnetic attraction (part b)

The magnetism is exerted upward within the wrong way of the electrical field force, In keeping with the right hand rule. As a result, the antiproton is subjected to the web force of the forces.

Step3: Finalization

Put the values in equation

The antiproton goes within the direction of the magnetic pull because the acceleration is positive. As a result, the acceleration is upward.
