I'm totally lost on this one- the earth is surrounded by an electric field with a strenth of 100 N/C at the surface. Its electric properties are the same as a point charge located at its center. How would the gravatational force and electrical force compare foor an electron at earth's surface. Compare magnitude and direction.

I don't know where to even start-this is a high school Physics, not AP, and I have the formulas but I don't know where I find the point charge etc to work with-Any help-thank you
