A plate carries a charge or -3.0 microC) while a rod carres a charge of +2.0 microCs. How many electrons must be transferred from the plate to the rod so that both obejcts have the same charge?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

e = 1.6 X 10^-19 C. 6.25 X 10^18 e per C of negative energy..

What I've done is -3.0 mC/6.25 X 10^18= -4.8 X 10^11. 2.0 mC/ 6.25 X 10^18= 3.2 X 10^11. Added up is 1.6 X 10^11

The solution is 1.6 X 10^13 however I keep getting 1.6 X 10^11. Can someone help me out with this? What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
