An electron moving through an electric field experiences an acceleration of 6.1 multiplied by 103 m/s2.
(a) Find the electric force acting on the electron.
(b) What is the strength of the electric field?
(a) Force = mass x acceleration
Look up the electron mass
(b) Force = e*E
Solve for the field, E. Use the force from part (a)
e is the electron charge.
