Charge and its propagation

    charge and its "propagation"

    if we imagine a charge. Now other "charges" can sense the presence of this charge when they are sufficiently close. This is due to temporary photons? Could some explain in a simple manner how this works? Take electric charges for instance.

    Try Richard Feynman's book "QED". It is (in my opinion) the best "simple" explanation.
