Problem Details

A charged particle is caused to move between two electrically charged plates, as shown in the diagram. A diagram shows a particle moving between two plates; one plate has a positive charge and the other has a negative charge. The particle bends toward the positively charged plate.

You may want to reference (Pages 46 - 49) Section 2.2 while completing this problem.

As the charge on the plates is increased, would you expect the bending to increase, decrease, or stay the same?
