An electron is released from rest in a uniform electric field of magnitude 2.00 x 10e4 N/C. Calculate the acceleration of the electron (neglect gravitation).

• physics -

acceleration = e*E/m

e and m are the elctron charge and mass, respectively. E is the electric field strength, in N/C units.

Now do the calculation

• physics -
