Calculate the mass of an ion that has a specific charge of 1.20x10^7 C kg^-1 and a negative charge of 3.2x10^-19 C.
Textbook answer: 2.67x10^-26 kg.
Question: if the ion has a negative charge of 3.2x10^-19, isn't that -3.2x10^-19?! In which case the answer would be -2.67x10^-26 kg?! Is the use of the word negative in this question a bit misleading?
