  1. charge= e*numbercharge

    original number of electron deficincy on sphere: n=7.8E-6 * e where e is the charge on a single electron.

    now add the charges (remember the charge on electrons is negative), so the net is the electron (extra or deficiency) on the sphere, convert that then to coulombs.
