Why does charge of a particle not appear in Schrodinger Equation even though mass appears?

Chapter 5
Q No. 9
Quantum Physics of Atoms Molecules Solids Nuclei and Particles - Robert Resnick, Robert Eisberg
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For the same reason that charge does not appear in the Newton Equation

$$m\mathbf{a}=\mathbf{F}$$
