An electron is accelerated by a constant electric field of magnitude 280 N/C.

(a) Find the acceleration of the electron

2. Relevant equations

E=qF

F=MA

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok so it seems that i should use the equations above to solve the problem, however, the values that im getting for the elementary charge and mass of an electron do not give me the correct answer. help??
