What is the magnitude if the acceleration experienced by an electron in an E of 750 N/C ? How does the direction of the acceleration depende in the direction of the field at this point?

    Q is the electron charge,and m is the mass of electron

    no.. q=1.6*10^-19 m=9.1*10^-31

    what if -1.6*10^-19 ? what is the difference between this negative and the positive 1.6*10^-19 ?

    yeah...i forgot...both electron and proton have the same charge.. for electron...it's negative...and for proton it's positive.

    so for electron..-1.6*10^-19

    so i will use negative in this problem? because of electron?

    acceleration has opposite direction of field

    so you mean, even if it is electron, it has acceleration so it will be positive?

    the positive field will attract the electron

    oh okay that means, when it attracts the electron it will be positive ?
