Massless charged particles

  1. Dec 12, 2008 #1
    I have the below doubts related to charge and mass..

    Why charge always comes with mass?
    Why there are no massless charged particles? what prohibits it? Is there any theory that prohibits it Or still to find one?
    How charge of a particle is calculated?

    Hi Spidey,

    If you would have looked a bit further down the page, you would have found this thread. It's on exactly the same topic.

    How charge of particle is calculated? Does mass come into this calculation?
