Question about protons/electrons...

Hi all :)
Something I cannot find out...Sorry if it's dummy question..

What does it mean, that the proton is ( + ) charged and the electron is ( - ) charged?
What is the difference between posit. and negative charge?
What is the meaning of the one and of the other?!

(Shouldn't have cut classes back then in high school )

Do you understand how a magnet works? one side of the magnet is charged positively and the other side is charged negatively. So "opposites attract" is from that, a magnet is attracted to a negative charge on it's positive charged side and to a positive charge on it's negative charged side. That is the beginning. If you want to learn how atoms work (as we perceive) then search the internet for "Live-Science What is an atom"

Hi Technisophian,

Welcome to Spiritual Forums.

As WildHairedWoman suggests, it would be helpful to ascertain the answer to your question from the wide array of articles (especially in Wikipedia) explaining "the meaning of the one and of the other". (See 1st reference).

However, I think you will also find the 2nd reference quite informative, considered from a different perspective on knowledge of how "another arrangement of atoms" can be very helpful, indeed.

BTW: No "charge"

@WildHairedWoman,
@guthrio,

Hi guys :)

I nearly found what i wanted to know:

"
Electric charge is the physical property of matter that causes it to experience a force when placed in an electromagnetic field. There are two-types of electric charge; positive and negative (commonly carried by protons and electrons respectively). Like charges repel and unlike attract. An object with an absence of net charge is referred to as neutral."

..


"Electric charge is a conserved property; the net charge of an isolated system, the amount of positive charge minus the amount of negative charge, cannot change. Electric charge is carried by subatomic particles. In ordinary matter, negative charge is carried by electrons, and positive charge is carried by the protons in the nuclei of atoms..."
