Linear accelerator transit time.

The time for an ion to traverse a voltage gradient between two electrodes.

acceleration, electric field, electron volts

v = velocity in m/sec

C = charge in Coulombs

V = potential in volts between the electrodes

momentum = eV = 1 2 m v 2
v = 2qV m

Elementary charge, e = 1.602176 x 10-19 C

Electron mass, me = 9.10938 x 10-31 kg

Proton mass, mp = 1.6726 x 10-27 kg

Charge, elementary multiples
