If 16mA of current flows through a conductor in one second, the number of electron transported per seconds is

[1 electronic charge = 1.6 x 10-19C]

Answer Details

Current (I) = q/t → q = i x t = 16 x 10-3 x 1 = 1.6 x 10-2C But 1.6 x 10-19C = I electronic charge 1 coulomb = 1 / (1.6x10-19) ∴ 1.6 x 10-2 coulombs = 1 / (1.6x10-19) x 1.6x10-2 / 1 = 1.0 x 10-2 x 1019 = 1.0 x 1017
