A point charge of mass 0.0836 kg and charge q = +6.84 μC is suspended by a thread between the vertical parallel plates of a parallel-plate capacitor, as shown in the figure below.


If the angle of deflection is θ = 22.3°, and the separation between the plates is d = 0.0221 m, what is the potential difference between the plates?


sorry it wouldn't let me paste the picture..

If you know the gravitational force and most of the details about the electric force you can use trigonometry to figure out how they relate. How far are you?
