For explaining why the website was wrong about the electron path, did we only have to say that it would be deflected towards the positive plate rather than negative? or was there more to it. I was really confused cos I didnt think that would be worth 3 marks?
Should have had a circular path too, not a sharp bend

Also, the electron is not instantaneously deflected by the electric field as it shows for a large portion of the electron's path to be undeflected whilst in an electric field. Also, it shows linear motion, however it should curve out a parabolic path towards the positive plate.

I also wrote that the electron should start deflecting from the start of the electric field, not from the middle of it...

I integrated and derived the kinetic energy formula whivh gave me the right answer. Was the answer to question 20 40 degrees?
Also the magnet question i used integration to show that it was curve shaped

why is it a parabolic path rather than a linear?
