An electron falls from rest through a vertical distance \(h\) in a uniform and vertically upward-directed electric field \(E\). The direction of the electric field is now reversed, keeping its magnitude the same. A proton is allowed to fall from rest through the same vertical distance \(h\). The fall time of the electron in comparison to the fall time of the proton is:

1. smaller 2. \(5\) times greater
3. \(10\) times greater 4. equal

A toy car with charge \(q\) moves on a frictionless horizontal plane surface under the influence of a uniform electric field \(\vec E.\)Due to the force \(q\vec E,\) its velocity increases from \(0\) to \(6~\text{m/s}\) in a one-second duration. At that instant, the direction of the field is reversed. The car continues to move for two more seconds under the influence of this field. The average velocity and the average speed of the toy car between \(0\) to \(3\) seconds are respectively:
1. \(2~\text{m/s}, ~4~\text{m/s}\)
2. \(1~\text{m/s}, ~3~\text{m/s}\)
3. \(1~\text{m/s}, ~3.5~\text{m/s}\)
4. \(1.5~\text{m/s},~ 3~\text{m/s}\)

Two identical charged spheres suspended from a common point by two massless strings of lengths \(l,\) are initially at a distance \(d\) \(\left ( d\ll l \right )\) apart because of their mutual repulsion. The charges begin to leak from both the spheres at a constant rate. As a result, the spheres approach each other with a velocity \(v.\) Then, \(v\) varies as a function of the distance \(x\) between the sphere, as:
1. \(v\propto x\)
2. \(v\propto x^{-1/2}\)
3. \(v\propto x^{-1}\)
4. \(v\propto x^{1/2}\)

Two pith balls carrying equal charges are suspended from a common point by strings of equal length, the equilibrium separation between them is \(r\) (as shown in Fig. I). Now, as shown in Fig. II, the strings are rigidly clamped at half the height. The equilibrium separation between the balls now becomes:
     
1. \(\frac{r}{\sqrt[3]{2}}\)
2. \(\frac{r}{\sqrt[2]{2}}\)
3. \(\frac{2r}{3}\)
4. none of the above
