  Electric charge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The interaction between charge and field is the source of the electromagnetic force, which is one of the four fundamental forces.
Electric charge is a characteristic of subatomic particles, and is quantized.
The electric charge of a macroscopic object is the sum of the electric charges of its constituent particles.

 Charge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Charge (physics), the susceptibility of a body to one of the fundamental forces, particularly as in the electric charge of electromagnetism

 AllRefer.com - charge (Physics) - Encyclopedia
The basic unit of charge, usually denoted by e, is that on the proton or the electron; that on the proton is designated as positive (+e) and that on the electron is designated as negative (-e).
Every charged particle is surrounded by an electric field of force such that it attracts any charge of opposite sign brought near it and repels any charge of like sign, the magnitude of this force being described by Coulomb's law (see electrostatics).
Charge is a conserved quantity; the net electric charge in a closed physical system is constant (see conservation laws).

 Electric current
Electric current is the rate of charge flow past a given point in an electric circuit, measured in coulombs/second which is named amperes.
The influence of charges is characterized in terms of the forces between them (Coulomb's law) and the electric field and voltage produced by them.
Although it is electrons which are the mobile charge carriers which are responsible for electric current in conductors such as wires, it has long been the convention to take the direction of electric current as if it were the positive charges which are moving.

 The Nature of Charge - Aether Physics Model
Unlike the electrostatic charge, which is the same for both the electron and proton, the strong charge is different for each onn and is directly proportional to the onn's mass.
Strong charge times 1/2 spin is 1/4pi (steradian) the area of a sphere or, strong charge times 1/2 spin times 4pi is equal to a sphere of electromagnetic (strong) charge.
The proportion of the electrostatic charge sphere (small ball in center) to the electromagnetic charge sphere (large gray sphere) is alpha, the Fine Structure constant.

 Glossary
At the atomic level charge is measured in multiples of the charge on an electron (-1), in larger cases the usual measurement is the Coulomb.

Charge does not flow nearly as easily through insulators as it does through conductors, which is why wires you plug into a wall socket are covered with a protective rubber coating.
If a charged object touches a conductor, some charge will be transferred between the object and the conductor, charging the conductor with the same sign as the charge on the object.

Furthermore, in such jurisdictions, you may file charges with EEOC within 300 days of the discriminatory act, or 30 days after receiving notice that the state or local agency has terminated its processing of the charge, whichever is earlier.
However, charges may be filed with EEOC and some cases of wage discrimination also may be violations of Title VII.
However, the time limits for filing in court are different under the EPA, thus, it is advisable to file a charge as soon as you become aware the EPA may have been violated.

 SCIENCE HOBBYIST: What is Charge?
...charge is the "glue" that connects all of the flux-lines of electrostatic fields to protons and electrons.
Well, if the positive and negative charges move along together, we call it "physical motion." Since matter is composed of charge-carrying particles, all physical motion is a motion of charge, but in most cases both the negative and the positive charges move along as one.
Charge and energy move differently: in AC cables the charges sit in one spot and slowly wiggle, while the energy flows along at almost the speed of light.

 The Field of A Moving Point Charge   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This applet shows the field of a moving charge, and how it is concentrated directions perpendicular to the motion.
When the charge moves at relativistic speed, the electric field is concentrated near the pole, and consequently the field lines are shifted.
Notice That when the charge is accelerated, because the field lines must be continuous, it is forced in a direction almost perpendicular to the the direction of propogation.

 Charge Control   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
When the battery charges to the maximum set voltage, a diversion control senses that voltage and consumes or "burns off" excess current to exactly off-set the excess charge, and keep thee battery voltage at, never exceeding, the preset maximum.
If you use a windmill that does not have its own charge control, or use hydroelectric generating, a diversion control must be used, since those generators can be damaged if their charge is not absorbed in the batteries at all times.
