### According to the principle of quantisation of charge, what does the total charge on a body need to be?

An integral multiple of the charge on an electron

### How is the concept of quantisation of charge related to the charge on an electron?

The charge on a body must be an integral multiple of the charge on an electron

### If a body has a net charge of +Q, how many elementary charges (e) have been removed from the body?

$Q/e$

### What type of value can be considered when talking about the total charge on a body according to quantisation of charge?

Whole number multiples of the elementary charge

### In the context of quantisation of charge, what would it mean if a body's total charge is not an integral multiple of the charge on an electron?

It violates the principle of quantisation of charge

### What is the algebraic sum of charges in the system if a charge of $-3 imes 10^{-19}$ is added to a charge of $5 imes 10^{-19}$?

$-2 imes 10^{-19}$

### If the system has a total charge of $-1.5 imes 10^{-19}$, and one charge is $-4 imes 10^{-19}$, what is the charge of the other component in the system?

$-2.5 imes 10^{-19}$

### In a system with two charges, one being $2 imes 10^{-19}$ and the other unknown, if the total charge of the system is $4 imes 10^{-19}$, what is the value of the unknown charge?

$-4 imes 10^{-19}$

### Given a system with a total charge of $0$ and two charges, $3 imes 10^{-19}$ and an unknown charge, what is the value of the unknown charge?

$-3 imes 10^{-19}$

### If a system has a net charge of $-4 imes 10^{-19}$ and one charge in the system is $7 imes 10^{-19}$, what is the value of the other charge in the system?

$11 imes 10^{-19}$
