I'm just getting started here and need a little help. Need a general method to figure problems like these:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If a drop of mass 1.1 X 10 ‾14 kg remains stationary in an electric field of 1.68 X 10 N/C:

(a) What is the charge of this oil drop?

(b) How many extra electrons are on this particular oil drop (given the presently-known charge of the electron)?

Any help is deeply appreciated.
