## Homework Statement

An electron has an initial velocity of 2.5 ×

106 m/s in the x direction. It enters a uniform

electric field ~E = (320 N/C) ˆj which is in the

y direction.

The charge and mass of an electron are

1.6×10−19 C and 9.11×10−31 kg, respectively.

Find the acceleration of the electron. An-

swer in units of m/s2.

## Homework Equations

MA=QE

a=QE/m

## The Attempt at a Solution

320*(1.6e-19)/(9.11e-31)= 5.62019759e13

Attempted to insert exactly as shown and was marked wrong. I can't seem to find a reason why the answer to this is wrong and I've hit a bit of roadblock so to speak

Any help is appreciated
