You need to use the following equation that helps you to evaluate the balancing force of electric field, such that:
`F = q*E => E = F/q`
Since the problem provides the mass `m = 5*10^(-3)Kg` of particle, you should replace `m*g` for `F` , such that:
`E = (5*10^(-3)Kg*9.8(m/s^2))/(4*10^(-6)C)`
`E = 12.25*10^3 N/C`
Hence, evaluating the directed up electric field, under the given conditions, yields `E = 12.25*10^3 N/C.`
