[Solved] What is the unit of surface charge density in the SI unit?

What is the unit of surface charge density in the SI unit?

a) C
b) C/m
c) C/m2
d) C/m3

Answer: c
Explanation: Surface charge density means how much charge is stored in the unit surface area of a conductor. So, its unit will be= the unit of the charge / the unit of area. In SI the unit of charge is Coulomb and the unit of area is m2. Therefore the required unit will be C/m2.
