(Solved) : Two Horizontal Metal Plates Each 100 Mm . . .

Two horizontal metal plates, each 100 mm square, are aligned 10.0 mm apart, with one above the other. They are given equal-magnitude charges of opposite sign so that a uniform downward electric field of 2 000 N/C exists in the region between them. A particle of mass 2.00 x 10-16 kg and with a positive charge of 1.00 x 10-6 C leaves the center of the bottom negative plate with an initial speed of 1.00 & 105 m/s at an angle of 37.0° above the horizontal. Describe the trajectory of the particle. Which plate does it strike? Where does it strike, relative to its starting point?
