Accelerated electron - Calculation of electric field

An electron is accelerated eastward at 1.4x109 m/s2 by an electric field. Determine the magnitude and direction of the electric field.

Solution Preview

The value of the field can be calculated from the force that the field exerts on the charge (This is the definition of the electric field). Remember that electric field and force are vector quantities.(force is proportional to ...
