    A certain gas in a tube is subjected to an electric field strength of increasing strength. The gas becomes conducting when the electric field reaches a strength of 35 kV/m. Explain why the gas becomes conducting only when the electric field strength in the tube reaches a certain value.

    My answer: when the electric field strength reaches a certain value, there is enough force to push electrons in the gas from one electrode to another according to the he equation E = F/Q.

    Correct or?
