The current in the electron beam of a computer monitor is 410 µA. How many electrons per second hit the screen?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

A beam current of 410µA means that 410µC of charge strike the screen per second. This is equivalent to (410e-6C)/(1.6×10-19C/e) = 6.56e-23 electrons...

But it's telling me that it's the wrong answer, any help is appreciated!
