so, a = eQ/mdC. substituting eQ/mdC for acceleration into d=1/2at^2
this is how you solve it using equations, obviously but I just wanted to see if anyone can explain it using physical relationships to gain a better understanding conceptually. milski came the closest though
that's what i did but is incorrect because this solution makes d into a square root. none of the answer choices reflect that.
