PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II

Answer for Ch. 23, 57P

The acceleration of the electron in the electric field is 3.5 x 1014 m/s2, downward. With that information this becomes a kinematics calculation, similar to a trajectory near the surface of the earth; the electron hits the upper plate 2.73 cm from the edge.
