 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
What does q measure?
 A the distance between the two charged objects B the amount of charge carried by the object C the amount of force between two charged objects D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The total amount of electrons deposited or removed from the object will determine the quantity (the amount) of charge on the object. The symbol for charge is “Q", and the symbol for Coulomb is “C". The amount of charge on one single electron can be mathematically determined to equal a very small amount of charge.

Detailed explanation-2: -In physics, charge, also known as electric charge, electrical charge, or electrostatic charge and symbolized q, is a characteristic of a unit of matter that expresses the extent to which it has more or fewer electrons than protons.

Detailed explanation-3: -The symbol Q represents the amount of charge in coulombs, and the symbol n refers to the number of electrons or protons. If both sides of the equation are divided by e, the number of particles in a coulomb can be calculated as the following: Q = n ⋅ e. Q / e = (n ⋅ e) / e.

Detailed explanation-4: -q is the symbol used to represent charge, while n is a positive or negative integer, and e is the electronic charge, 1.60 x 10-19 Coulombs.
