# Eletric charge

## Homework Statement

which quantity of excess electric charge could be found on an object

1) 6.25 x 10 exponenet -19 c
2) 4.80 x 10 exponent -19 c
3) 6.25 elementary charges
4) 1.60 elementary charges

## Homework Equations

i know that 1.60 x 10 exponenet - 19 c is one element charge

## The Attempt at a Solution

but i dont know how many charges are in a object

Can you find 2.5 elementary charges in an object?

The simplest charge on an object is that which you stated $$1.6 \times 10^{-19}C$$, which is one electronic charge.

An 'object' is far too vague, this doesn't give us any information on the type of object, whether it is charged/uncharged or +ve/-ve charge.

Are you sure you aren't missing any of the question?

is it right that 4.80 x 10 exponenet - 19 c work since it gives 3 elementary charge

is it right that 4.80 x 10 exponenet - 19 c work since it gives 3 elementary charge
Bingo, as all the others are fractions of an elementary charge.

Glad you weren't fooled by the 4th choice, I assume many people will be.
