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

$$v=\sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{2qV}}{m}}$$

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
