An electron is traveling through a region of space in which the electric field is along the +x direction and has a magnitude of 1560 N/C. What is the acceleration of the electron?

  • physics - ,

    acceleration = eE/m

    e is the electron charge, m is the electron mass and E is the electric field

    The answer should have a minus sign because an electron will accelerate in the -x direction, due to its negative charge. The natural constant "e" is always listed as a positive number.
