All right i have a simple problem but i just want to verify my results, so any help would be greatly appreciated. The problem is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

7.1* 10^12 electrons are added to a body that already has a negative charge of 0.2uC(the u is micro 10^-6). Calculate the final charge on this body.

Now i have

(7.1* 10^12)(1.602* 10^-19) + (0.2* 10^-6)

which gave me 1.337 uC

is this correct?
