Homework Help: A Neutral Balloon

  1. Jan 28, 2004 #1
    We have a netural balloon and the question wants to know what it's charge is after 19000 electrons have been removed. Wouldn't the charge remain the same since the object wasn't charged in the first place?

    Neutral means no. of positive charge=no.of negative charge

    So when we remove some negative charge there is disbalance of charges. here it results in

    no of positive charge greater than negative charge
