CHARGE The charge e on one electron is negative and equal in magnitude to 1.602 10 -19 C. The charges that occur in nature are integral multiples of the electronic charge. In one Coulomb of charge, there are 1/ 1.602 10-19 = 6.24 10 18 electrons The charge can neither be created nor destroyed, only transferred
