Electric bees. As they fly through the air, honeybees can pick up a small amount of electric charge. Suppose a 0.12-g bee acquires a charge of –65pC.

How many excess electrons has the bee acquired?

Find the magnitude of the electric force on the bee in the electric field just above Earth’s surface, 120N/C directed vertically downward.
