The Nuclues of a Manganese atom has a net charge of +4E-18C. Its nearest electron is located 4E-10 m from the nucleus. What is the electrostatic force between the nucleus and the electron? (Hint:what is the charge of the electron? Not 1!)

I believe that you'd use the equation Q=ne
So, I know Q (net charge)=+4E-18C
the little e is always 1.6E-19

Am I doing this right? And how do I finish it?
