The net charge is the charge that there is more of in an object. For example, if an object has 5 electrons (negative charges) and 4 protons (positive charges), then the net charge is negative because there are more electrons in the object. If the object gains 2 protons through the transfer of electric charge then the net charge becomes positive. However, if the object loses 1 proton to have an equal amount of both protons and electrons, then the net charge becomes nuetral.
