Answer : (c) $y=\large\frac{x}{\sqrt{3}}-\large\frac{2}{3}\;\large\frac{qEx^2}{mv^2}$
Explanation :
There is no acceleration along x - axis Therefore
$x=(v cos 30^{0})\;t$
$x=\large\frac{v \sqrt{3} t}{2}$
Acceleration along y-axis $a_{y}=-\large\frac{qE}{m}$
$y=(v sin 30^{0})\;t+\large\frac{a_{y}}{2}\;t^2$
$y=(v sin 30^{0})\;t-\large\frac{qE}{2 m}\;t^2$
$y=\large\frac{x}{\sqrt{3}}-\large\frac{qE}{2 m}\;\large\frac{x^2}{v^2}\times\large\frac{4}{3}$
