Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a) clearly the E field acts upwards to offset gravitational acceleration and you can say that \(Eq = mg\) to calculate q. b) divide that q amongst as many electrons as add up to that number of Coulumbs worth of charge. ie \(n_{missing} = \frac{q}{e^}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and we have\[Eq = mg\] since we can apply the first law of Newton
