Protons are projected with an initial speed vi = 9.98 km/s from a field-free region through a

plane and into a region where a uniform electric field = −720 N/C is present above the plane
as shown in in the figure below. The initial velocity vector of the protons makes an angle θ with
the plane. The protons are to hit a target that lies at a horizontal distance of R = 1.15 mm from
the point where the protons cross the plane and enter the electric field. We wish to find the
angle θ at which the protons must pass through the plane to strike the target.

plane?

A block having mass m and charge +Q is connected to an insulating spring having a force
constant k. The block lies on a frictionless, insulating, horizontal track, and the system is
