## alfers101 3 years ago What are the magnitude and direction of the electric force on an electron in a uniform electric field of strength 2360N/C that points due East.

1. lalaly

Force=electric field x charge electric field=2360 charge of an electron=1.6 x10^(-19)

2. alfers101

how will i answer this question? its only a sample problem.

3. lalaly

$F=Eq=2360 \times 1.6 \times 10^{-19}$$=3.776 \times 10^{-6}N \text{ \to the east}$ magnitude =3.776x10^-6 N direction towards the east

4. alfers101

so the charge of electron is constant?

5. lalaly

yes it is , it is always the same

6. alfers101

okay thank you so much :) so is it attraction? i mean, positive or negative?
