    Answer:

    The electric field is E = 5.1*10^6N/C.

    Explanation:

    The force F on a charge q in an electric field E is given by

    F = qE,

    which can be rearranged to give

    E = \dfrac{F}{q }

    Now, the force on the electron is F = 8.30*10^{-13}N, and its charge is

    q = 1.6*10^{-19}C; therefore,

    E = \dfrac{8.30*10^{-13}N}{1.6*10^{-19}C}

    \boxed{E = 5.1*10^6N/C}
