Determine the acceleration of a proton (q = +e, m = 1.67 E -27)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

in an electric field of intensity 500 N/C. How many times is this acceleration greater then that due of gravity

I'm not so understanding on todays lessons

teh 2 formulas I can recall are f = q*e

and e = f/q

but i dont see that helping here, can someone help me start off

thanks guys.
