Correct Answer - Option 1 : Repel each other

CONCEPT:

Electric Charge

  • It is defined as the intrinsic property of certain fundamental particles like electrons, proton, etc, due to which they produce electric and magnetic effects.
  • Types of electric charge
    1. ​Positive charge: A body having a deficiency of electrons.
    2. ​Negative charge: A body having an excess of electrons.
  • Properties of electric charge
    • Like charges repel and unlike charges attract each other.
    • A charge is a scalar quantity.
    • A charge is always quantized.
    • A charge will always remain conserved.
    • A charge is always associated with mass.
    • The unit of charge is the coulomb.

⇒ 1 coulomb= charge on 625×1016 electrons

EXPLANATION:

  • Like charges repel and unlike charges attract each other.
  • So when two bodies have similar charges are kept close to each other, they will repel. Hence, option 1 is correct.
