^Properties of charge

*Properties of charge

1. Charge is scalar, i.e. has no direction.

2. Charge is additive i.e. total charge on a body is given by addition of individual charges for discrete distribution & by integration for continuous distribution.

3. Charge is conserved in any isolated process

4. Charge is quantized i.e. charge smaller than electronic charge, e = 1.6 x 10 – 19 C (also called elementary charge.) is not possible and exists in integral multiple of e i.e. mathematically.

Q = Ne, here N is an integer.

5. Charge is invariant of space, time & velocity.

6. Charge is can’t exist without mass.
