Question
Calculate the initial (from rest) acceleration of a proton in a $5.00 \times 10^6 \textrm{ N/C}$ electric field (such as created by a research Van de Graaff). Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for electrostatics.

$4.79 \times 10^{14} \textrm{ m/s}^2$
