Flow of electric charge is similar to flow of heat by radiation. Both are electromagnetic waves. However, the heat has a potential, thermal potential. Similarly, the electric charges are electromagnetic waves that have a potential, positive or negative electrical potential. Such definition is verfied experimentally and theoreticlly in my published papers,

This definition is the key that may delete the confusion of the duality property of electrons. Defining the electron as a charge is the source of such confusion as the charge is a wave. According to this definition, Einstein explanation of photoelectric effect is found as a misconception.

### What is the fundamental carrier of electric charge?

The fundamental carrier of electric charge is the electron. The charge on one electron is 1.6021765 &Atilde;&mdash; 10&acirc;&circ;&rsquo;19 Coulomb, and is negative. Charge can't exist in any smaller quantity, and all charges are multiples of this quantity. Protons have a positive charge of the same quantity, but they stay in their respective nuclei and don't participate in the movement of charge from place to place.

### Do electric charges move?

Yes, a charge is the fundamental electric property to which the mutual attractions or repulsions between electrons or protons is attributed. Electric charges are constantly flowing.

### Do all electric charges MOVE?

Yes, a charge is the fundamental electric property to which the mutual attractions or repulsions between electrons or protons is attributed. Electric charges are constantly flowing.

### What is charge of property and what is seller's charge and buyer's charge?

Electric charge is a fundamental conserved property of some subatomic particles, which determines their electromagnetic interaction. Electrically charged matter is influenced by, and produces, electromagnetic fields. The interaction between a moving charge and an electromagnetic field is the source of the electromagnetic force, which is one of the four fundamental forces.

### Is a electric charge a property of just electricity or is charge a property of all atoms?

The only short answer I can think of for this question is "no".Electric charge is a property of certain fundamental particles. We don't know why they have the specific charges they do, they just do. When you lump them together into an atom ... or anything else ... whether that "lump" ends up with an overall charge or not depends on whether the charges on the fundamental particles within it cancel out or not. For neutrons they do; for protons they don't.
