# number of electrons watch

Announcements
1. a conductor carries a current of 0.4A. find the amount of charge that will pass through the cross-section of the conductor in 1.5 minutes. how many electrons will flow in this time interval? given charge on an electron= 1.6*10^-19
2. 1A = 1Cs-¹
1C = 1/(1.6*10^19) electrons

So essentially multiply the current by the number of electrons per coulomb, and multiple that by the time IN SECONDS.

number of electrons = time * electrons per coulomb * current.

1.6*10^-19*90?
4. No, that's too high. It's around 2.25*10^20
