#### Question

How many electrons are flowing per second past a point in a circuit in which there is a current of 5 amp?

#### Solution

Current, *I* = 5 A

Time, *t* = 1 s

Using the relation, *I* = *Q* / *t*:*Q* = *I* x *t*

= 5 x 1 = 5 C

Now, if the charge is `1.6xx10^-19C` the number of electrons is one.

So, if the charge is 5C, the number of electrons is given by:

`1/(1.6xx10^-19)xx5=31.25xx10^18`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
