(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An electron (m= 9.1*10^-31 kg, q=-1.6*10^-19C) moving with a speed of 10^6 m/s enters the region between two parallel and oppositely charged metal plates across which the potential difference is 10V. Will the electron hit the opposite plate- show calculations on how you would solve this.

2. Relevant equations

Va-Vb= E*dL

q*V= (1/2)mv^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Do you first find the potential then solve for the velocity?
