Electric Potential and Charged Particle Acceleration
Electric Potential

If a charge is moved in an electric field, then work is done/energy is converted.

The potential V at a point in a field is the work done W per unit charge q in taking positive charge
from infinity to that…

Deflection

Charged particles are deflected by electric fields and it follows from the definition of electric field
strength that the force F on a particle carrying a charge Q in a field of strength is given by:

F = EQ

If the field is provided by a pair of…
