Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lauren on Friday, February 26, 2010 at 3:16pm.

An electron enters a parallel plate apparatus 10.0cm long and 2.0cm wide, moving horizontally
at 8.0 10^7 m/s. (top plate is positive, electron is 1.0cm from each plate..) The potential difference between the plates is 6.0 10^2 V. Calculate...

(a) the vertical deflection of the electron from its original path.
(b) the velocity with which the electron leaves the parallel plate apparatus.

----

Im really confused with questions asking for vertical deflection...im not sure what formula to use..should i be using the formula for energy where U=mgh and solve for h? this is the only thing i can think of..any help would be great
