**1. Homework Statement**

Two charged plates are 2mm apart. An electron escapes from the negatively charged plate and reaches the positively charged plates in 1.2x10^-8 seconds. Find the electric field between the plates.

**2. Homework Equations**

E=V/d

eV= + or - 1.6x10^-19 C

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

The only way I could think of doing this is below but I'm not confident in my answer whatsoever.

(unsure how to find velocity, too, given the numbers in the problem)

V= (1.60x10^-19C )x(1.2x10^-8s)

V= 1.92x10^-27

E= (1.92x10^-27)x(0.002m)

E= 3.84x10^-30 N/C
