Hi danial20,

Thanks a lot for noticing that. Yes, I made the error in changing from standard to scientific notation and it should indeed by times 10 to the positive three. I've updated the quick answer, and updating the video is on my to-do list.

All the best with your studies,
Mr. Dychko

Shouldn't answer for c) = 3.27*10^3 N/C . Just pointing it out.
