28.7. Solve: (a) Each gold atom has one conduction electron. Using Avogadro’s number and n as the number of moles, the number of atoms is Nn N m M N V M N rL M N = === () A A A A A A A ρ ρπ 2 The density of gold is = 19,300 kg/m 3 , the atomic mass is M A = 197 g mol 1 , r = 0.5 × 10 3 m, L = 0.1 m, and N A = 6.02 × 10 23 mol 1 . Substituting these values, we get N = 4.63 × 10 21 electrons. (b) If all the electrons are transferred a charge of (4.63
