The Earth is surrounded by an electric field on its surface that points toward the center of the Earth with an average magnitude of 150 N/C. If there is an electron that is released in vacuum at the Earth’s surface, what will the acceleration due to the Earth’s electric field be.

I got 2.6 × 1013 m/s2 am I right

  • Physics -

    acceleration = e E/m.

    e = 1.6*10^-19 C
    m = 9.1*10^-31 kg
    E = 150 N/C

    I do not agree with your answer.
