Formula[edit | edit source]

The following information was extracted from Wikipedia

                                            Q(t2) = Q(t1) - Qin - Qout
  • Q = quantity of charge
  • t = time

Characteristics of Charges[edit | edit source]

  • May have: positive ( + ) or negative charge ( - )
  • Proton - ( + ) positive charge
  • Electron - ( - ) negative charge
  • Like repels like ( + , + ) or ( - , - )
  • Opposite charges attract ( + , - )
  • Charge can be transferred from one object to another
