Would my homemade particle accelerator work?

    I have a cylinder that is closed and it contains light ions (sodium ions as they're easier to get) and the solution is saturated. when I turn the cylinder on (apply power) the potential difference is 300 volts. how fast would the ions travel in mPH?

    ions in nerve cells travel 200+ mPH and the potential difference is very low in a nerve cell so will my ions travel 300 times faster?

    Is this an honest question or are you just trolling?

    Is there a prize for the Most Precocious Question? Or perhaps the Scariest Question, if you work for the Fire Department.

    Sure it will work. 300 volts accelerating sodium ions down tube. Sure, why not?
