Cheyanne (11) asked “What is the total charge of 7 electrons”

Cheyanne

I am a little confused  by your question. I asked my team for an answer……and here it was

 

Thanks team. I would like to add a little bit more to your answer

Firstly the electron is a very, very small particle, it has a radius of 0nly 2.8×1015 m.   It is very, very small. That is an unimaginable small size.  Associated with this very small particle is an actual , very small electrical charge of about  1.6x 1019 volt (V).

So in reality when you are talking about the total charge of seven electrons you are only talking about  7 x 1.6x 1019 volt (V).

Sorry for this answer. I think it complicates things …stick to what my team member says. In reality when you are talking about the charges on seven electrons as 7- you are talking about the total charge that about  7 x 1.6 x 1019 electrons will give you .
