(a) What is the total negative charge, in coulombs, of all the electrons in a small 1.00 g sphere of carbon? One mole of C is 12.0 g, and each atom contains 6 protons and 6 electrons. (b) Suppose you could take out all the electrons and hold them in one hand, while the other hand you hold what is left of the original sphere. If you hold your hands 1.50 m apart at arms length, what force will each of them feel? Will it be attractive or repulsive?
