what would be the direction of the acceleration of the electron of the given diagram below? And please explain how you determined direction?

I'm not sure if you need this information or not, but I'm just providing it, just in case.

In the diagram, radio waves passes 1m and have an electric field strength of 1.5x10^-5 N/C.

    Assume that you are looking in the direction of em coming. The electric field will be either up and down or left hand hand direction. If your hands and body cover x and y axis, then electric filed will in the plane. One does not where. Electrons follow electric field in x-y plane.
