What is their colective mass

  1. Jan 28, 2008 #1
    On a dry day, your body can accumulate static charge from walking across a carpet or from brushing your hair.
    If your body develops a charge of -10 (microcoulombs), how many excess electrons has it acquired?

    N=6.2*10^13 electrons



    What is their collective mass?
    Express your answer using two significant figures.

    m=_____g
