Charge of an electron, q = -1.60 × 10-19 C
Mass of electron, m = 9.1 × 10-31 kg
The charge of an electron is -1.60 × 10-19 C. Determine the charge to mass ratio of the electron (in 1011 C/kg). (Hint: divide the electron's charge by its mass; the answer is a negative number with a positive exponent)
