### Does all matter have a negative or positive charge?

Electrons have a negative charge; Protons have a positive charge; and neutrons have no charge.

### Electrons carries a positive or negative charge?

Yes, they have a negative charge. Protons have a positive charge and neutrons have no charge, they are neutral.

### If an object has more electrons than protons it has what type of charge?

Since protons have a positive charge and electrons have a negative charge, an atom with more protons than electrons would have a positive charge. Note that an atom with this kind of imbalance is known as an ion.

### What part of an atom has a negative charge and what was a positive charge?

electrons = negative charge protons = positive charge neutrons = neutral charge

### Dose electrons have a positive charge or negative charge?

they have both negitive and positive charge
