ix. How many electrons would have a total charge of 1 coulomb ?

chapter 5 electrochemistry class 12 chemistry textbook solution

2. Answer the following in one or two sentences.

ix. How many electrons would have a total charge of 1 coulomb ?

Answer:-

1. Charge on 1 electron (\(e^-\)) is \(1.602 \times 10^{-19}\) coulombs:
\[e^- \equiv 1.602 \times 10^{-19}\, \text{C}\]
2. Therefore, the number of electrons having a total charge of 1 coulomb is given by:
\[= \frac{1}{1.602 \times 10^{-19}} = 6.242 \times 10^{18}\]
3. The number of electrons having a total charge of 1 coulomb is \(6.242 \times 10^{18}\).
