Magnitude of electric field, is this right?

  1. Sep 13, 2010 #1
    a 1.65 x 10^-6 C charge experiences an acceleration of 6.33 x 10^7 m/s^2 in an electric field. What is the magnitude of the electric field?

    E = F/q

    F = ma ?

    So if F = ma then mass is not given and then E is correct.

    A. 3.84 x 10^16
    B. 1.65 x 10^-9
    C. 14.9 N/C
    D 2.67 x 10^-19
    E. more info is needed to solve
