Hi, I have a question and I hope anyone could answer it:
Two charge particulars one is electron and other is negatively charged ion have a velocity directed parallel to the plates. They are sent separately into the field. Both the electron and the ion have reveived their initial kinetic energy by passing the same potential difference. Which of the two particles will travel a greater distance (parallel to plates shown by ‘I’) before hitting the positively charged plate, if both fly into the capacitor at a point that is exactly in the middle of the distance between the plates?
