Static Electricity - Mission SE1 Detailed Help

An atom that is positively charged (OR negatively charged OR neutral) contains ____.

Charged vs. Uncharged Objects
Objects are made of atoms and the charged parts of atoms are protons and electrons. Protons are charged positively and electrons are charged negatively. Whether or not an object is charged or uncharged (neutral) is dependent upon whether the numbers of protons (+ type of charge) or electrons (- type of charge) are balanced or imbalanced. A neutral object possesses the same amount of the two types of charge while a charged object has a imbalance of the two types of charge. If an object is charged, then it can be either positively- or negatively charged. A positively charged object possesses more protons than electrons and a negatively charged object possesses more electrons than protons.
