    no we cant as here conservatio of enrgy is found :) which states charge can neither be created nor destroyed only can transfer from one state to another

    heene is not 100% correct charge is always compensated like ground takes place. when we say 5v is grounded it means that earth has send -5v to comensate the +ve charge

    Actually we can. Positive and negative charges "destroy" each other when they come together. Conservation of charge simply states that you can't have an isolated system change its charge. Whatever you do to it, its net charge will remain constant. In fact, charged particles moving at relativistic speeds also don't change their charge (mass changes, if you are aware).

    agree with @Aditya790 as i said it an xmaple of conservation we can never destroy the charge it can be tranfer to another form dat gicve u result that is its destroyed but fact is its snot destroyed its still in system

    the only actual destraction i know is the "coalition" of an electron and a positron

    in coalition of electron and positron,no charge is getting destroyed charge is simply getting neutralized( initially net charge in system is zero and finally also the net charge is zero) i'm telling what happens if net charge inside system is destroyed..........

    charged antiparticles annihilate each other so even when the 'a' charge can be destroyed,the total net charge is conserved..

    yes consider proton gives neutron and positron thu conserving charge.sub particles like pi-mesons etc are responsiple for charge........but if u think of contradicting charge conservation then think......if any charge is destroyed neutral then its opposite pair will remain un balanced....thus start dividing diapoles.and breaking stability.wch in real life is not correct.hpe u undestand what i said.......
