4 CHAPTER 15 22. The magnitude of the electric force on the electron of charge e due to a uniform electric field G is . Thus, the force is constant. Compare this to the force on a projectile of mass m moving in the gravitational field of the Earth. The magnitude of the gravitational force is mg . In both cases, the particle is subject to a constant force in the vertical direction and has an initial velocity in the horizontal direction. Thus, the path will be the same in
