# How many electrons must be transferred

#### lsnyder

A plate carries a charge of -3.7 µC, while a rod carries a charge of +2.4 µC. How many electrons must be transferred from the plate to the rod, so that both objects have the same charge?

What, specifically, is your trouble with the above problem?

$$\displaystyle 1 C = 1 \times 10^6 \mu C$$
