1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An an electric field. An electron is held stationairy in a vacuum between two charges metal plates. It is attracted to the positive plate since unlike charges attract. The weight of the electron balannces the electric force. Now these two forces are balanced. Acceleration is 0 ms^-2 That would also mean the electron is moving with constant velocity. But if thats true, how could the electron be held stationairy?
