  • 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 : (b) $\;both\;are\;negative$
Explanation : Field lines are coming towards both of the charges . Hence are negative.
