##### Solution Preview

1. In a particular television tube, the beam current is 60.0 Mu A How long does it take for 3.75 x 10^14 electrons to strike the screen?

Current= 60 Mu A =60x10^(-6) A
1A=1Coulomb/Second
A current of 60 Mu A involves the transfer of charge of 60x10^(-6) Coulombs per second= 0.00006 Coulombs/sec
