How would I calculate the **charge on a small sphere** with an excess of 5.0 x 10 ^{14} electrons?

Asked Kaitlin Thomas

**Answer**:

We know that charge on an electron is (-) 1.6 x 10^{-19} C

If the sphere has 5.0 x 10 ^{14} electrons in excess then the body has a net negative charge and is given by q = ne

Charge on the sphere = 5.0 x 10 ^{14} x (-) 1.6 x 10 ^{-19} = 8 x 10 ^{-5} C
