The fundamental charge is e = 1.60 × 10−19 C. Identify whether each of the following statements is true or false. (a) It’s possible to transfer electric charge to an object so that its net electric charge is 7.5 times the fundamental electric charge, e. (b) All protons have a charge of +e. (c) Electrons in a conductor have a charge of −e while electrons in an insulator have no charge.

(a)

To determine
Whether the given statement is true or false.

Explanation

It is equal to the magnitude of charge carried by a proton or electron. It is denoted by e. The magnitude is e=1.6×10x

(b)
