# It Is Not Possible To See Very Small Objects Such As Viruses Using An Ordinary L

It is not possible to see very small objects, such as viruses, using an ordinary light microscope. An electron microscope can view such objects using an electron beam instead of a light beam. Electron microscopy has proved invaluable for investigations of viruses, cell membranes and subcellular structures, bacterial surfaces, visual receptors, chloroplasts, and the contractile properties of muscles. The “lenses” of an electron microscope consist of electric and magnetic fields that control the electron beam. As an example of the manipulation of an electron beam, consider an electron traveling away from the origin along the x axis in the xy plane with initial velocity v = vi. As it passes through the region x = 0 to x = d, the electron experiences acceleration a = ax + ay, where ax and ay are constants. For the case vi = 1.94 107 m/s, ax = 7.13 1014 m/s2, and ay = 1.74 1015 m/s2, determine the following, at x = d = 0.0100 m.(a) the position of the electron yf = Your response differs significantly from the correct answer. Rework your solution from the beginning and check each step carefully. m (c) the speed of the electron (d) the direction of travel of the electron (i.e. the angle between its velocity and the x axis)
