ICECREAM_HERO 3 years ago A particle has a charge of 600µC and a mass of 0.6nkg. This particle is placed in a uniform electric field of 1200 N/M. What is the acceleration of the particle?

1. chand

find the force acting on the mass. F= mass * acceleration. thus acceleration is F/mass

2. hosein

you can use from these: F=qe F=ma

3. exraven

$F=qE$$ma=qE$$a = \frac{qE}{m}$

4. Taufique

here Electric field is vector quantity and @ ICECREAM_HERO,in your given question the direction of electric field is not given .....

5. Taufique

here only consider, the electric force because the gravitational force is very low compare to electric force. Fnet=qE =>a=qE/m..find it
