## Homework Statement

An electron is originally moving at 6.8 x 10

^{7}m/s in positive x direction as it enters a region of confined, uniform, electric field. Magnitude of field is 2.6 x 10

^{6}N/C in negative y direction and its length in x direction is 6.2 x 10

^{-4}meters. If one ignores weight of electron as a force, with what angle will electron be traveling when it leaves field when measured counter-clockwise from positive x-axis in degrees? Answer is 3.43.
