A few hundred years have passed since the discovery of electricity and electromagnetic fields, formulating them as Maxwell's equations, but the nature of an electric charge remains unknown. Why do particles with the same charge repel and opposing charges attract? Is the electric charge a primary intrinsic property of a particle? These questions cannot be answered until the nature of the electric charge is identified. The present study provides an explicit description of the gravitational constant G and the origin of electric charge will be inferred using generalized dimensional analysis.

Key words: Electric charge, gravitational constant, dimensional analysis, particle mass change.
