Solution 6Q

Step 1:

Electric charge is the physical property of matter that causes it to experience a force when placed in an electromagnetic field. There are two types of electric charges: positive and negative (commonly carried by protons and electrons respectively). Like charges repel and unlike attract. An absence of net charge is referred to as neutral.

Step 2:

An object is negatively charged if it has an excess of electrons, and is otherwise positively charged or uncharged.

The charge is denoted by symbol (Q) and its SI unit is coulomb(C).
