Can anyone help me with this question? Thank-you(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A net charge of 51 mC passes through the cross-sectional area of a wire in 10.0 s. What is the current in the wire? How many electrons pass the cross-sectional area in 1.0 min?

I know that the current is .0051, but I'm having trouble finding the electrons. I know an amp is a coulomb per second, am I going to use C=6.3e18 somewhere? I tried 6.3e18/60 sec but that was wrong
