    Looks like a capital theta, a letter in the Greek alphabet. No idea what it is supposed to represent, though.

    Here is the lab worksheet, I think it is the angle of the force being applied on this electron. I have plugged in numbers that I think are right, just trying to make sure I understood what they were asking for here. lab37.png
