    Please help with the following problem.

    A uniform electric field exists in the region between two oppositely charged parallel plates 1.53 cm apart. A proton is released from rest at the surface of the positively charged plate and strikes the surface of the opposite plate in a time interval 1.47 * 10^-6 s apart.

    Part A: Find the magnitude of the electric field.
    Part B: Find the speed of the proton at the moment it strikes the negatively charged plate.
