The force on the electron (F) can be calculated using the formula: F = E * e where: F is the force, E is the electric field strength and e is the elemental charge. We substitute the given values into the equation: F = 320 N/C * 1.6 * 10^−19 C = 5.12 * 10^−17 N Now we can calculate the acceleration (a) of the electron using Newton's second law: a = F / m where: F is the force and m is the mass of the electron. Substitute the force (F) and mass (m) into the equation: a = 5.12 * 10^−17 N / 9.109 * 10^−31 kg = 5.60 * 10^13 m/s² Therefore, the magnitude of the acceleration of the electron is about 5.60 * 10^13 m/s².
