Answer :

No, it does not mean that the electron has a charge 3.2 × 10–19C less than the charge of a proton. Electrons and Protons have same amount of charge just the nature of charge is different. Electron has negative charge and Proton has positive charge. If we keep an electron and a proton at a distance apart then attractive force will be observed as their nature of charge is different.
Hence, magnitude of charge of both electron and a proton is
1.6 × 10–19 C but nature is opposite.
