21.31: a) Passing between the charged plates the electron feels a force upward, and just misses the top plate. The distance it travels in the y -direction is 0.005 m. Time of flight s 10 25 . 1 8 s m 10 60 . 1 m 0200 . 0 6 - × × = = = t and initial y -velocity is zero.

To find the vertical displacement when it exits the plates, we use the kinematic equations
