The microcurrent through the electrode in a delicate circuit is usually held constant at \(3.6 * 10^{-8}\) amps. Because of a defect in another part of the circuit, the current was 1,000 times smaller. What was the current, in amps, caused by this defect?

A. \(3.6*10^{-8000}\)

B. \(3.6*10^{-24}\)

C. \(3.6*10^{-11}\)

D. \(3.6*10^{-5}\)

E. \(3.6*10^{\frac{-8}{3}}\)

1,000 times smaller means we divide it by 1,000 which is basically 10^3

So (3.6 * 10^-8)/(10^3) = 3.6 * 10^(-8 -3) = 3.6 * 10^-11
