Toolbox:
  • 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 : $\;-1.33\times10^{13}\;C$
Explanation : Number of electrons in 75 kg = $\;\large\frac{75}{9.11\times10^{-31}}$
$=8.23\times10^{31}$
Mass of one $\;e^{-}=9.11\times10^{-3}\; kg$
Charge on these electrons = $\;-8.23\times10^{31}\times1.6\times10^{-19}$
$=-1.31\times10^{13}\;C$
