Electric charge is the intrinsic property of the elementary particles like electrons and protons of the matter and produces the force on other various objects.It's symbol is 'q'. or 'Q'.
It's unit is coulomb symbol is C
It is a scalar quantity.
The charge on electron is negative and on proton is positive
The charge on electron or proton is known as basic charge and is represented by symbol 'e'
e=1.6x10 to the power (-19)c
Net charge an object is q=ne where n integer.
