I HOPE THE LENGTH OF PLATES YOU HAVE MENTIONED IS 0.2 m NOT 200 m
Because, due to electric field due to parallel plates the proton will experience a force in y-direction :
Fy = qp * Ey = mp * ay
where, qp and mp are the charges and masses of the proton respectively and ay is the acceleration in ...
