Problem 107P

Problem 107P

Electrical charge is sometimes reported in coulombs (C). On this scale, 1 electron has a charge of −1.6 × 10−19 C. Suppose your body acquires –125 mC (millicoulombs) of charge on a dry day. How many excess electrons has it acquired? (Hint: Use the charge of an electron in coulombs as a conversion factor between charge and electrons.)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 107P

Charge of an electron = −1.6 × 10−19 C

Charge acquired by the body=-125mC=-125× 10-3 C

Number of electrons×Charge of an electron =-125× 10-3 C

therefore,Number of electrons=

                                               =78.125× 1016electrons=7.9× 1017electrons
