    The Pd across the gap is 10KV. So halfway the PD will be half of that which is 5000V

    Oh okay, thank you!
    I used the electric field strength from V/d and multiplied by r to get Velec. Is this an incorrect method?

    Yes you can use that equation! Field Strength is the same but the distance r is half
