# Acceleration Due To Electric field

Show/Hide Sub-topics (Electric fields | A Level)

When a charged particle is placed in an uniform electric field, in absence of all other forces, it will experience an acceleration in the direction of the field lines.

$F = ma$

$qE = ma$

$a = \frac{qE}{m}$

All laws of Kinematics can be applied to the motion of the charged particle.
