State Conservation of Charge

The law of conservation of charge states that an electric charge can neither be created nor be destroyed. In an isolated system, the next charge will always remain constant.

Examples of conservation of charge:

  • The net charge will be zero when two bodies are rubbed against each other where there is an exchange of charges.
  • There is zero net charge production when a radioactive decay of proton takes place resulting into a positron and neutron.
