A particle of mass m and charge q is fastened to one end of a string of length l . The other end of the string is fixed to the point O . The whole system lies on a frictionless horizontal plane . Initially , the mass is at rest at A . A uniform electric field in the direction shown is the switched on . Then speed of the particle at B and tension in the string are

$(a)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{2qEL}{m}} , 2qE\qquad(b)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{qEL}{m}} ,2qE \qquad(c)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{qEL}{m}} ,qE \qquad(d)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{2qEL}{m}} ,3qE $

Answer : (b) $\;\sqrt{\large\frac{qEL}{m}} ,2qE $
Explanation :
From A to B
Work done by electric field = charge in kinetic energy of particle
$l^{|}\;$ = distance travelled by particle along the direction of electric field .
$l^{|}=l-l cos 60^{0}=\large\frac{l}{2}$
Work done by electric field = $\;qEl^{|}$
At B , F .B .O of particle is
$T - qE=\large\frac{mv^2}{l}$
