positive, positive

Your Answer
B

positive, negative

Your Answer
C

negative, negative

Correct Answer
D

negative, positive


Solution

The correct option is D

negative, positive


Protons carry a positive charge. Hence, the charge of each proton will be +1.6×1019C

Electrons carry a negative charge. Hence, the charge of each electron will be 1.6×1019C

By convention, we take the charge on an electron to be negative and the charge on a proton to be positive.
