The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 o± 1) 10 points Two conductors insulated ±rom each other are charged by trans±erring electrons ±rom one conductor to the other. A±ter 1 . 401 × 10 13 have been trans±erred, the potential di²erence between the conductors is 16 . 3 V. The charge on an electron is - 1 . 60218 × 10 - 19 C . What is the capacitance o± the system? Correct answer: 1 . 37709 × 10 - 7 F. Explanation: Let : e = - 1 . 60218 × 10 - 19 C , N = 1 . 401 × 10 13 electrons , and V = 16 . 3 V . One conductor gains a charge o± Q = - N e while the other gains a charge o± - Q.
