What is the acceleration of a charged particle in a uniform electric field? Assume the particle moves along a straight line parallel to the electric field. Show that a particle starting from rest at x=0 and t=0 the speed and position are given by the following formulas.

2. Relevant equations

Vx=(eE/m)(t/Sqrt(1+(eEt/mc)^2)

and

x=(mc^2/eE)Sqrt(1+(eEt/mc)^2-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know where to start...
