Amit Saxena Grade: upto college level
        A molecule of a gas, filled in a discharge tube, gets ionized when an electron is detached from it. An electric field of 5.0 kV/m exists in the vicinity of the event. (a) Find the distance travelled by the free electron in 1 μs assuming no collision. (b) If the mean free path of the electron is 1.0 mm, estimate the time of transit of the free electron between successive collisions.

										Sol. E = 5 Kv/m = 5 * 10^3 v/m ; t = 1 μs = 1 * 10^–6 s

F = qE = 1.6 * 10^–9 * 5 * 10^3
A = qE/m = 1.6 *5 *10^-6/9.1 *10^-31
a) S = distance travelled
= 1/2 at^2 = 439.56 m = 440 m
b) d = 1 mm = 1 * 10^-3 m
1 * 10^-3 = 1/2 * 1.6 * 5/9.1 10^5 * t^2
⇒ t^2 = 9.1/0.8 * 5 * 10^-18 ⇒ t = 1.508 * 10^-9 sec ⇒ 1.5 ns.
