[Solved] If an object is positively charged, theoretically the mass of the object ______

If an object is positively charged, theoretically the mass of the object ______

a) Increases slightly by a factor of 9.11*10-31 kg
b) Decreases slightly by a factor of 9.11*10-31 kg
c) Remains the same
d) May increase or decrease

Answer: b
Explanation: If an object is positively charged it loses some of its electrons. The mass of an electron is 9.11*10-31 kg. So, if a positively charged body loses the ‘n’ number of electrons, its mass decreases by the amount n*9.11E-31kg.
