To all of you out there,

Is there a possibility that an electron will have a positive charge. One of my professor says that it has been discovered that it is possible. Is it true?

Re: electron charge

what we call "positive" and "negative" charge is just an assumption and from this respect we can say that an electron have a "positive" charge, this not wrong if we consider this difference we made in our other calculations. but you say my proffessor said so... and i think that prof. said something different..... or what he says is very interesting....

Re: electron charge

Actually there is a positron [e+] that has positive charge. The positive or negative value of charge is just an asumption. How ever, in nature there always balance. Like dark and light. So there is also a positron [ e+]. If we combine the electron and positron there will be a bunce of energy released and the two will be disappear.
