Electrostatic forces

    A person accumulates a net charge of -59uC, how many excess electrons does this person get and by how much does her mass increase?

    Make the (simple-minded) assumption that the net charge is purely due to excess electrons. What's the charge of each electron? What's the mass of each electron?
