  1. IS THE TOTAL CHARGE OF AN ORGANISM/UNIT ALWAYS THE SUM OF THE POSITIVE
    CHARGE IN THE ORGANISM/UNIT PLUS THE THE SUM OF THE NEGATIVE CHARGE IN
    THE ORGANISM/UNIT?

    I could probably find the exact answer to this question eventually
    after doing a Google search, but I thought I might save quite alot of
    time if I got lucky posting this question to newsgroups. The question
    is, is the charge of a unit always the sum of the charges within the
    unit? For example if there is an organism with ten molecules, 3 of
    which are negatively charged and 3 of which are positively charged, is
    the total charge of the organism simply 3 + -3 = 0? Is the total
    charge of the organism or unit always simply the positive charge in
    the organism/unit plus the negative charge in the organism/unit?

    The way you're mixing organisms and particles it sounds like you're
    delusional and don't even DESERVE an answer. Get a dictionary and
    READ it, then get some science books.

    Humm. Your question uses the wrong terminology but...

    I believe the answer might be NO. I'm thinking of what might happen in one
    plate of a non rechargable battery.
