electrical charge


A fundamental property used to explain attraction and repulsion between certain particles. Two types of charge exist: negative charge, which is generally conveyed as an excess of electrons, and positive charge, which is generally conveyed as a lack of electrons and excess of protons. The interaction of opposite charges produces an attractive electrical force, and the interaction of like charges produces a repulsive electrical force.
