# Problem: What is the net charge on a sphere that has the following?(a)    5.89x106 electrons and 8.37x106 protons(b)    240 electrons and 106 protons

###### FREE Expert Solution

In this problem, we'll add up the charge due to electrons and protons on an object to get the net charge.

Charge:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Q}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{e}}}$ where n is the number of particles and e is the electron charge.
