Humid air breaks down electrically when its molecules become ionized. this happend in an electric field |E|=3*10^6 N/C. In that field, calculate the magnitude of the electric force on an ion with a single positive charge.
..when they say a single positive charge do they mean +1, or +e (e=1.6*10^-19)...and would I just put |E| and q ( +1 or +e) into the following equation... F=qE ... or is it more complicated...?

Yeah you just use F=qE, so you just multiply E by e
