How many electrons must be removed from a piece of metal to give it a positive charge of $\;1\times10^{-7} \;C\;?$


1 Answer

  • The SI unit of quantity of electric charge is the coulomb, which is equivalent to about $6.242 \times 10^{18}$ e (e is the charge of a proton). Hence, the charge of an electron is approximately $1.602 \times 10^{?19}$ C.
Answer : (a) $\;6.25\times10^{11}$
Explanation : Let the number of electrons removed be n Then
