An object carries a charge of -6.0 µC, while another carries a charge of -2.0 µC. How many electrons must be transferred from the first to the second object so that both objects have the same charge?

    Let n number of electrons are transferred from -6µC to -2µC carrier and the both should have a equal charge of (-6-2)/2 = -4µC

    =>Thus total charge to be transferred = -6µC -(-4µC) = -2µC

    =>By ne = -2µC

    =>n x (-1.6 x 10^-19) = -2 x 10^-6

    =>n = 1.25 x 10^13
