Motion of a Charged Particle in a Uniform Electric Field

Motion of a Charged Particle in a Uniform Electric FieldIf an object having an electric charge q is at a point in space where the electric field is E, the force on the object is given by

F = qE

We already have learnt how to determine E for some particular situations. Now let us suppose we know E and we want to find the force on a charged object and the object’s subsequent motion. (We assume no other forces act.)
