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 x-coordinate 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?
