An alpha particle is accelerated through a potential difference of 2000v what will be the increase in energy in electron volt

Expert Answer:

An α - particle is accelerated to PD = 2000 V 
 
Increase in kinetic energy, Δ K = Change in Potential energy (ΔU)
 
Thus, 
Δ K = Q V = (2e) x (2000 Volts) = 4000eV
