Electric Field questions.

  1. Jan 29, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    1. What is the magnitude and direction of the electric field at point Z in the diagram?

    q = - 2.0 x 10-5 C q = + 8.0 x 10-6 C
    60 cm 30 cm
    X Y Z

    2. An electron is released from rest adjacent to the negative plate in a parallel plate apparatus. A potential difference of 500 V is maintained between the plates, and they are in a vacuum. With what speed does the electron collide with the positive plate?

    2. Relevant equations

    Electric Field type questions

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I attempted them but I don't remember how to do them, it was a long time. I need some assistance. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
