Electronic types neglect the force of gravity on electrons.To see why, compute the force of Earth's gravity on an electron and compare it with the force exerted on the electron by an electric field of magnitude 6000 V/m (a relatively small field). The mass of an electron 9.1093897*10^-31 and the charge of electron 1.602*10^-19
include correct units

what is your question here? Compute the two forces and compare.
