Solution Summary

The expert calculates the value of Uniform electric field. Coloumbs charge of mass is examined.

Solution Preview

(* denotes multiplication, ^ denotes power)
uniform means constant
acceleration comes from the force the electric field applies on the charge as
force = mass * acceleration

Electric force= E*q
where E= Electric field
when we equate it to mass * acceleration we get Electric field E as we know the mass and the charge

We will calculate the three components of the Electric field in x,y and z directions as field is a ...
