Electric Cell

July 23, 2021

Matter is made up of protons, electrons and neutrons. Protons carry positive charge, electrons carry negative charge and neutrons do not carry any charge. An atom is electrically neutral but if a body carries excess of protons than the electrons, the body gets positively charge. If the body has excess of electrons than the protons, body gets negatively charged.
