# As physics- specific charge help??? watch

1. An ion has a specific charge of 3.832x106 Ckg-1 and a negative charge of 4.8x10-19 C. Work out:
a) The number of nucleons in the ion (to the nearest whole number)

Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses.

As Specific Charge = Charge / mass
Divide the charge in the question by the mass of a nucleon (on your data sheet - it's something like 1.67 x 10^-27 )
This should give you an answer to which you will have to give to the nearest whole number
