The magnitude of the electric force exerted on each electron is $3.20\times 10^{-14}~N$ and this force is directed upward.
We can find the magnitude of the electric force on each electron: $F = E~\vert q \vert$ $F = (2.00\times 10^5~N/C)(1.6\times 10^{-19}~C)$ $F = 3.20\times 10^{-14}~N$ Since the charge on each electron is negative, the force exerted on each electron is directed upward. The magnitude of the electric force exerted on each electron is $3.20\times 10^{-14}~N$ and this force is directed upward.
