is the mass affected by the charging?

Expert Answer:

When a body gets charged or is discharged, there is a slight increase or decrease in the number of electrons in the body.
 
The mass of electron is very small. Hence, any addition or subtraction of electrons will not affect the mass much.
 
There will be a slight increase or decrease in mass, but that change will be negligible.
