Homework Help: Current and charge

  1. Jan 5, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    Hi, Can you please help with the following:
    1. Calculate the number of electrons passing a point in the wire in 10min when the current is 5A

    2. In an electric beam experiment the beam current is 1.2mA. Calculate
    a. the charge flowing along the beam each minute
    b.the number of electrons that pass along the beam each minute
    2. Relevant equations
    1 c= 1.6x10^19



    3. The attempt at a solution
