The motion of charged matter underlies many things we enjoy like phones and plasma globes. It also puts a permanent end to the enjoyment of some 6,000 people per year, as fatal lightning strikes.

A nail with a mass of \( 17 \text{ g} \) is charged with \( - 2.24 \times 10^{-13} \text{ C}. \) How many excess electrons are in the nail?

The elementary charge is \(e=1.60 \times 10^{-19}\text{ C}.\)
