Dose vs Charge

Dose and charge are similar, but different.  The difference is that charge is potential and dose is applied.

I can get a dose of electricity but only from a source that is charged.

If I fill a syringe, it is charged.  When someone receives a shot, it is a dose.  When you take medicine it is a dose that may be prescribed by a doctor.

Static electricity is a charge.
