An electron enters a parallel plate apparatus 10.0cm long and 2.0cm wide, moving horizontally
at 8.0 ﾗ 10^7 m/s. (top plate is positive, electron is 1.0cm from each plate..) The potential difference between the plates is 6.0 ﾗ 10^2 V. Calculate...
(a) the vertical deflection of the electron from its original path.
(b) the velocity with which the electron leaves the parallel plate apparatus.

Im really confused with questions asking for vertical deflection...im not sure what formula to use..should i be using the formula for energy where U=mgh and solve for h? this is the only thing i can think of..any help would be great
