(b) Let the distance to be travelled be x, Let the strength of uniform electric field be E, For electron

u = 0, s = x, a = eE/me , t = t1 , S = ut + ½ eE/2e x t21

? x = ½ eE/2 me x t21 …..(i)

For proton

u = 0, s = x, a = eE/ mp , t = t2, S = ut + ½ at2

? x = ½ eE/2mp x t22 ……(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

t22 / t21 = mp/me ? t2/ t1 = [mp / me]1/2
