    Now i know the specific charge of an electron is its electric charge is to mass ratio.
    So when the speed of the electron increases what happens to the specific charge(mostly decreases)??
    And why????

    I'll take a wild-eyed, seat of the pants, back of the envelope, shoot from the hip, stab at this one. You have given an incomplete definition. The specific charge of an electron is its electric charge to rest mass ratio. In that case the speed of the electron will have no effect on the specific charge.
