Main Question or Discussion Point

Just need someone to tell me if I'm doing this right.

If I have accelerated a particle in which the mean free path is 50nm and I need the collision to be 5eV would this be correct in determining the required electric field strength?

5/.00000005 = 100MV/m

No. Double check your units.
