In this study, experimental and theoretical double differential cross section (DDCS) data for methane-electron interaction mechanism after the impact of a 250 eV electron have been comprehensively determined for a wide energy range of the detected electron, from 50 to 225 eV. The first Born-One Coulomb wave modeling with Gamow factor has been calculated to analyze experimental DDCS results for a correct description of the electron impact ionization of methane molecule. It is found that these theoretical calculations are successful to describe the post-collision interaction effects due to the Coulomb long-range interaction between the outgoing electrons in the final state. A considerable agreement is found between experimental and theoretical results.
