An ink-jet uses an electric field to direct charged ink drops to a sheet of paper. Consider ink drops with mass

m=8.5x10^-11 kg that are charged to 1.6 pC entering perpendicular to a uniform electric field of strength 120 kN/C j(hat). If the droplets have an initial velocity of 15 m/s, how far will they deflect on passing through a 2mm region?
