When electrons and ions move through a gas in a uniform field E and gas pressure p, their mean energies attain equilibrium values dependent on the ratio E/p; or more precisely,
For a uniform field gap, the electric field E = V/d. Thus applying Townsend's criterion for spark breakdown of gases gives
which may be written in terms of the functions as
