Correct Answer - Option 2 :  625 × 1017

CONCEPT:

Electric Charge

  • It is defined as the intrinsic property of certain fundamental particles like electrons, proton, etc, due to which they produce electric and magnetic effects.
  • Types of electric charge
    1. ​Positive charge: A body having a deficiency of electrons.
    2. ​Negative charge: A body having an excess of electrons.
  • Properties of electric charge
    • Like charges repel and unlike charges attract each other.
    • A charge is a scalar quantity.
    • A charge is always quantized.
    • A charge will always remain conserved.
    • A charge is always associated with mass.
    • The unit of charge is the coulomb.

⇒ 1 coulomb= charge on 625×1016 electrons

CALCULATION:

We know that the number of electrons in 1-coulomb charge is,

⇒ N = 625×1016 electrons

So the number of electrons in 10-coulomb charge is,

⇒ N' = 10 × 625 × 1016 electrons

⇒ N' = 625 × 1017 electrons

  • Hence, option 2 is correct.
