Abstract: A charge in the Euclidean space $\mathbb{R} ^m$ is an additive function defined on the family of all bounded BV sets equipped with a suitable topology. We define derivatives of charges and show that each measurable function defined on $\mathbb{R} ^m$ is equal almost everywhere to the derivative of a charge.
