^{-8}Newtons acting upon the electron and proton each.

If found this by using the formula F

_{e}= (k

_{e}q

_{1}q

_{2})/r

^{2}

Taking this number, I then applied it in the formula F = ma to find the acceleration of the electron.

I found the acceleration of the electron to be ≈9.02x10

^{22}m/s/s.

This doesn't seem right. Am I supposed to be using a different equation for this. I'm trying to find the acceleration of the electron based on the force acting upon it. I don't think this is how it's supposed to be calculated but I just did this because I thought it might be correct. The mass I used was ≈9.1x10

^{-31}kg
