Homework Help: Electronic field

  1. Apr 19, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Electrons with the speed v0 move through a constant electronic field E of length L
    (A two plate conductor)

    In the electric field the particle have gained a velocity component in y-direction
    Show that this y-component is:


    Tip: [itex]s=v_0*t+1/2*a*t^2, v=v_0+a*t, a=F/M[/itex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I would think is has something with how much time the electron has to respond to the field in a y-direction. How much time does the electron use trough the field etc… but that’s hardly a guess…

    ....and that time would probably be represented by the L/Vo term in the Vy equation....
