Hint for Ch. 29, 5P

a)Looking sideways, into the screen is west...


b) Convert KE from eV into joules.

c) acceleration is always perpendicular to the velocity; the electrons are undergoing uniform circular motion. The radius of the path R below can be found from the relationship between velocity and centripetal acceleration; i.e., ac = v2/R.
