Answer:

There are #6.25 xx 10^(18)# electrons per coulomb of charge

Explanation:

I will answer that by giving you the opposite (inverse) value. If you could collect together 1.0 mole of electrons, the total charge on those particles would be 96 350 coulombs (also known as a Faraday of charge).

Alternatively, you could take the reciprocal of the elementary charge, #1.6xx10^(-19)# coulombs per electron, and you would have the number of electrons per coulomb:

#1/ (1.6xx10^(-19)) = 6.25 xx 10^(18)# electrons per coulomb.
