An electron with an initial velocity of 4.7 x 10^7 m/s in the x-direction moves along a trajectory that takes it directly between the center of two 20 cm x 20 cm plates separated by 1 cm. The plates are connected to a high voltage power supply so that the potential difference between them is 500V. What is the magnitude of the y-component of the electron’s velocity when it leaves the plates? (Answer in units of ANSWER x 10^7 m/s.)
E = V/d
The Attempt at a Solution
I think I found the electric field of the plates to be:
E = 500V / .01m E = 50,000 V/m
From there I have no idea where to go...Any help would be appreciated!
