Charge (physics)

Undercharging in physics generally refers to the property of particles or objects to interact with a field.

Applies to the charge of a conservation law, it is often associated with a symmetry of the underlying field, see Noether 's theorem.

Special charges are:

  • Electric charge ( electromagnetic interaction)
  • Color charge ( for strong interactions )

These charges are the subject of the standard model, yet comes as an additional charge:

  • Mass ( the gravitational interaction )
