Usually just use the constant they give in the equation sheet, which I believe is usually 6.626*10^-34 J*s. Rounding up sometimes can eventually lead your answer to be slightly off from the real answer, so it is better to be more precise with your constants.

Second use stoichiometry to find the amount of moles multiplied by 6 which will tell you the amount of F ions
