(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A beam of electrons is hitting a block of metal with current A. What is the frequency they are hitting the block?

2. Relevant equations

i=q/t

3. The attempt at a solution

i=q/t => 1/t=i/q. So then 1/t=A/e, where e is the elementary charge.

This may in fact be right. Our prof gave it to us as a question to think about and I want to know what everyone else is thinking.
