#### Answer:

TIme needed: **198 years**.

#### Explanation:

All you really need to know in order to be able to solve this problem is what exactly *is* a **Coulomb**.

A Coulomb is a unit of electric charge equivalent to the charge contained by

So, to get a total charge of **1 C**, you need the body to give out a *total* of

You know that the body gives out **1 C** you'd need

To get a better understand of exactly how much time is needed, use a series of conversion factors to go from seconds to years

This is equivalent to

**SIDE NOTE** *I'll leave the answer rounded to three sig figs, just for good measure*.
