Definitions for negative charge
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word negative charge
having a surplus of electrons; having a lower electric potential
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
One of the two kinds of electric charges. The other is the positive. By the double fluid hypothesis this is assumed to be a charge of a particular kind of electricity--negative electricity. By the single fluid hypothesis it is supposed to be caused by the absence of part of the normal electricity of a surface. The reverse is held by some theorists. The subject is so purely theoretical that neither of the two hypotheses is accepted as final. [Transcriber's note: Current is a wire is the motion of negative electrons. Current in a electrolyte is the motion of positive ions and negative ions. Current in a plasma is the motion of electrons and positive ions.]
