Electrons, like all forms of matter, fall under the influence of gravity. If an electron is projected horizontally with a speed of 3.0 X 10 7 m/s (one-tenth the speed of light), how far will it fall in traversing 1.0 m of horizontal distance?

The negative sign indicates that the displacement in downward, towards the ground.
Therefore, the vertical displacement of the electron is – 0.54 x 10-14 m.
