Problem: Five particles are shot from the left into a region that contains a uniform electric field. The numbered lines show the paths taken by the five particles. A negatively charged particle with a charge -3Q follows path 2 while it moves through this field. Do not consider any effects due to gravity. Which path would be followed by a charge +6Q? Path 1 Path 2 Path 3 Path 4 Path 5
