Kinetic Energy of Particles (e.g. Ions and Electrons)
- Practical Electron Microscopy and Database -
- An Online Book -  


This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.



The kinetic energy of a particle, e.g. ion and electron, is the energy possessed by the particle by virtue of its motion. The kinetic energy of the particle is equal to the amount of work needed to establish its velocity and rotation, starting from rest. The kinetic energy of the particle can be given by,

           KE = (1/2) mv2 ------------------------- [3953]

        KE -- The kinetic energy (in joules)
        m -- The mass (in kg)
        v -- The velocity or speed of the particle (in m/s)
