Motion of a charge particle in an electric field – Numerical Problem

At t=0 a very small object with mass 0.400mg and charge +9.00μC is travelling at 125 m/s in the -x-direction. The charge is moving in a uniform electric field that is in the +y-direction and that has magnitude E= 895 N/C. The gravitational force on the particle can be neglected. How far is the particle from the origin at t= 7.99 ms.

Hint for solving the above problem:

displacement along X direction; x=-uxt=125 x 7.99/1000

Displacement along Y direction, y=0.5 ay t2

ay=qE/m

s=√(x2+y2)

Just substitute the values and get the answer
