EVALUATE:
Even this small net charge corresponds to a large number of excess electrons. But the number of
atoms in the sphere is much larger still, so the number of excess electrons per lead atom is very small.

EVALUATE:
This is a huge amount of negative charge. But your body contains an equal number of protons and
your net charge is zero. If you carry a net charge, the number of excess or missing electrons is a very small fraction
of the total number of electrons in your body.
