Homework Help: phys urgent!

Posted by kenzie on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 4:25pm.

A particle leaves the origin with a speed of 2.4 times 10^6 m/s at 38 degrees to the positive x axis. It moves in a uniform electric field directed along positive y axis. Find Ey such that the particle will cross the x axis at x = 1.5 cm if the particle is an electron.

I don't know what I am doing wrong on this problem. So I used the equation y(t)= y0 + v0t + ((1/2)qEt^2)/m

I rearranged it to solve for E in terms of t and got E= 2.733e-5/t then I plugged in the t I got from finding x=vxt=1.5cm

My answer came out to be 3.44e3 N/C
