6  Get the Total Charges for the Molecule
7}
8\description{
9\code{get.total.charge} returns the summed partial charges for a molecule
10and \code{get.total.formal.charge} returns the summed formal charges. Currently,
11if one or more partial charges are unset, the function simply returns
12the sum of formal charges (via \code{get.total.formal.charge}). This is slightly
13different from how the CDK evaluates the total charge of a molecule (via
14AtomContainerManipulator.getTotalCharge()), but is in line with how OEChem
15determines net charge on a molecule.
16
17In general, you will want to use the \code{get.total.charge} function.
