How shocking

Classical Mechanics Level 2

A 9V battery has an electric potential difference of \(9~\mbox{V}\) between the positive and negative terminals. How much kinetic energy in J would an electron gain if it moved from the negative terminal to the positive one?

Details and assumptions

  • The charge on the electron is \(-1.6 \times 10^{-19}~\mbox{C}\).
  • You may assume energy is conserved (so no drag or energy loss due to resistance for the electron).
