Unformatted text preview: tc.) has a certain amount of electric charge (can be zero) • Quantization of charge: charge of any particle is some integer multiple of the “fundamental” charge e = 1.6 x 10-19 C (Coulumb) Example: How many electrons do you have to collect such that the net charge of the system is -1C? Monday, September 9, 13 Electric Charge • Every fundamental particle (quarks, electrons, neutrinos, photon, Higgs, etc.) has a certain amount of electric charge (can be zero) • Quantization of charge: charge of any particle is some integer multiple of the “fundamental”...
