In a television picture tube, electrons are accelerated by an electric field having a value of 1*10^5 N/C. Find the force on an electron.

so i know i use E=F/q to find the force but i need the q to get it how do i do that??

  1. The charge of every electron (and positron and proton) is called e.
    e = 1.602*10^-19 Coulombs

    F = e E
