The maximum electric field there can be near the Earth's surface is about 3x10^6 NC^-1. For greater fields, sparking occurs.
What is the order of magnitude of the acceleration of a singly ionised nitrogen molecule of mass 4.6x10^-26kg in an electric field of 2.8x10^6 NC^-1?

The force on a charge is found from F=Eq (you know E and q)

Acceleration is found from F=ma (you know m)
