a quick fact about potatoes and other stuff

Quick Prelude:

There are two kinds of electric charge:  positive and negative

Two important details:

  1. If an object contains the same amount of positive charge as it does negative charge, all the positive charge cancels out all the negative charge, leaving no charge
  2. Every object contains exactly the same amount of positive charge as it does negative charge.

 

The Fact:

The Book:

Were it not for this, we would be subjected to enormous forces: a potato would explode violently if the cancellation were imperfect by as little as one part per 10,000,000,000.
