## Homework Statement

In the figure, an electron accelerated from rest through potential difference 1.7 kV enters the gap between two parallel plates having separation 20.0 mm and potential difference 110 V. The lower plate is at the lower potential. Neglect fringing and assume that the electron's velocity vector is perpendicular to the electric field vector between the plates. What uniform magnetic field allows the electron to travel in a straight line in the gap?

## Homework Equations

F=qvB

q=charge

v=velocity

B=magnetic field

## The Attempt at a Solution

I honestly don't know where to even begin, I know I've got to be missing a formula because distance has got to be used somewhere in there, I'm just interested in getting an idea how to start this problem.
