Answer : 27172C
Amount of Cu deposited =mass of Cu deposited/molar mass of Cu
$\Rightarrow$(density $\times$ volume) of Cu deposited/molar mass of Cu
$\Rightarrow ( 8.94gcm^{-3})(10\times 10\times 10^{-2}cm^3)/(63gmol^{-1})=0.142$ mol
Since 2 electrons are required to convert $Cu^{2+}$ to Cu,the quantity of electricity needed is
$(2\times 96500Cmol^{-1})(0.142$ mol)=27388C
