multiple of the “fundamental” charge e = 1.6 x 1019 C (Coulumb) Example: How many electrons do you have to
collect such that the net charge of the system is 1C? Monday, September 9, 13 Electric Charge • Every fundamental particle (quarks, electrons,
neutrinos, photon, Higgs, etc.) has a certain amount
