From Part A, charge of one electron is **-1.4 x 10**^{-9}

Use formula:

**$\mathbf{\#}\mathbf{}\mathit{o}\mathit{f}\mathbf{}\mathit{n}\mathit{e}\mathit{g}\mathit{a}\mathit{t}\mathit{i}\mathit{v}\mathit{e}\mathbf{}\mathit{c}\mathit{h}\mathit{a}\mathit{r}\mathit{g}\mathit{e}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{total}\mathbf{}\mathbf{negative}\mathbf{}\mathbf{charge}}{\mathbf{}\mathbf{one}\mathbf{}\mathbf{negative}\mathbf{}\mathbf{charge}}$**

Imagine a unit of charge called the zorg. A chemist performs the oil drop experiment and measures the charge of each drop in zorgs.

You may want to reference (Pages 44 - 74) Chapter 2 while completing this problem.

Based on the charge of the electron you calculated from the data in Part A, complete the statements below regarding the number of electrons in each drop.
