Group Title
A free electron in an oscillating field experiences a force \(\mathbf{F}=e\mathbf {E}(t)\), where \(\mathbf {E}(t)=\mathbf {E_0}sin(wt)\) and \(\mathbf {E_0}=(E_0,0,0)\) < completely in the x direction.
if x(t) is the xcoordinate of the electron and we assume \(x(0)=\frac{dx}{dt}(0)=0\)
How do we find the equation of motion along the 'x' axis from this information?

@Mashy how did you come up with that differential?

\(F=ma=eE(t)\) \(m\frac{d^2 x}{dt^2}=eE(t)\) Is this what you did?
