Electric charges and field

the velcotity in direction of electirc field will get changed due to work done by electirc field on it .
but the other component of velocity perpedicualar to field wont get effected. hence a parabolic path

Let electric field be in the upward Y direction and charge be a positive point charge.
X direction is perpendicular to Y direction. In short X is horizontal .
This is exactly similar to the situation of projectile motion in which gravitational acceleration is in negative Y direction.
No need to say that trajectory is parabola.
