If the charge on an electron is 1.6 × 10−19 coulombs, how many electrons should pass through a conductor in 1 second to constitute 1 ampere current?
Using the formula:
Now, if the charge is `1.6xx10^-19`C, the number of electrons is 1.So, if the charge is 1C, the number of electrons is given by:
Thus, `6.25xx10^18`electrons should pass though a conductor in 1 second to constitute 1 ampere current.
