Motion inside a Uniform Electric Field Calculator

The Motion inside a Uniform Electric Field Calculator will calculate the:

  1. Acceleration caused on a charge inside a uniform electric field due to the electric force
  2. Moving time of a charge between two parallel plates charged oppositely
  3. Total displacement of a charge inside a uniform electric field

Please note that for the purpose of calculations, the Motion inside a Uniform Electric Field Calculator applies the following logic:

  1. Medium is considered as vacuum or air (ϵ = 1)
  2. The charge is initially considered at rest in contact with the plate which has the same type of charge
