## osanseviero one year ago Charge in electric field question

1. osanseviero

I throw a charge with initial velocity to an electric field. I need to calculate the distance it travels. We know the following info: * Initial velocity * Charge * Voltage and distance between the two fields (we then know the electric field) * The charge and its mass

apply the basic equations of motion such as $$x = ut + \frac{1}{2}at^2$$ the tweak, usually, is that for Newton's Second, $$F = ma$$, the F in the vertical direction might be a combination of gravity and the electric interaction so $$F = \pm Eq \pm mg = ma$$ depends on your actual set up:p
