Explain the meaning of the statement ‘electric charge of a body is quantised’.
Electric charge of a body is quantized. This means that only an integral (1, 2, …., n) number of electrons can be transferred from one body to the other. Charges are not transferred in fractions. Hence, a body possesses total charge only in integral multiples of electric charge.
