Two large conducting parallel plates A and B are separated by 2.4 m. Plate A is at an electric potential of 1500 V and plate B is at a potential of -1500 V. A proton is placed at rest adjacent to plate A and released. What is the electric potential energy of the proton when it is first released from rest? Recall that the mass of a proton = 1.67 x 10-27 kg, and its charge is e = 1.60 x 1019 C. What is the speed of the proton when it reaches plate B?
