Electricity: Coulomb’s Law, Force, Energy, Potential

Intrinsic property of particles that comprise matter Point charge: charged particle with negligible size Mass and charge are independent from each other Positive Charge (q+) and Negative Charge (q-) Coulomb’s Law Magnitude of electric force between two charged spheres is proportional to the absolute amount of charge on each sphere, and is proportional 1/r2 where…

Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging

Induction: Induced & Permanent Charging Static electricity can be generated through: Friction, Conduction, INDUCTION Induction INDUCTION involves the movement of electrons in a neutral object when a charged object is brought close to the neutral object. The movement occurs WITHOUT DIRECT CONTACT between objects. Induced Charge Separation/ Temporary Charging When a negatively charged rod is…
