1e  qe =1.6021010-19 Coulomb mproton = 1836melectron
mproton = kg melectron= kg mproton = 1836melectron 1e  qe = 10-19 Coulomb

How many electrons are there in
1 Coulomb of negative charge? How many protons are there in 1 Coulomb of positive charge?

Three pith balls are suspended from thin threads.
Various objects are charged (rubbing glass against polyester, nylon against silk, rubber against fur, etc) and each pith ball is charged by touching them with one of these objects. It is found that pith balls A and B repel each other and that B and C repel each other. 1) A and C carry charge of opposite sign. 2) A and C carry charge of the same sign. 3) All three carry charge of the same sign. 4) Additional experiments are necessary to determine the sign of all charges.

A hydrogen atom is composed of a nucleus containing a
single proton, about which a single electron orbits. The electrical force between the two particles is 2.31039 greater than the gravitational force! If we adjust the distance separating the two particles, can we find a separation at which the electrical and gravitational forces are equal? 1) Yes, by moving the particles farther apart. 2) Yes, by moving the particles closer together. 3) No, at any distance.
