jatasia Group Title

An electron enters midway through a uniform electric field of 198 N/C at an initial velocity of 416 m/s, as shown in the diagram. If the plates are separated by a distance of 2.02 cm, how far along the x-axis will the electron hit the bottom plate.

    Well everything seems alright as given. But i just ran another vertical displacement equation and if we substitute in the horizontal d i just found above, it doesn't reach the plate... so the above is not correct..

    okay, well let's work through this, it'll help us both. First we should find the acceleration of the electron, obviously in the y direction.

    Not necessary i don't think. the particle will move at constant velocity forever in the horizontal, so i think we just need vertical here. now we need the time to get a position.
