Static charge also known as static electricity

Refers to an electric charges that can be collected and held in one place

Atoms

Adams are tiny particles and all matter is made of Adams

Protons

Have a positive charge so the nucleus is positively charged

Electrons

Are around the positive nucleus and are much lighter particles they have a negative charge

Neutral

The Adam is uncharged

Insulators

Materials that do not allow charges to move easily

Conductors

Materials that allow electrons to travel freely

Coulomb

The unit of electrical charge

Coulomb

The unit of electrical charge

The van de graaff generator

Uses friction to produce a large static charge on a metal dome

Coulomb

The unit of electrical charge

The van de graaff generator

Uses friction to produce a large static charge on a metal dome

Applications of static electricity

Plastic sandwich wrap clings because of static charge static charge is also used to decrease pollution

Contact forces

Forces that can have an effect only on objects that they touch

Electric forest

Is a push or pull between charged objects

Action at a distance forces

Can apply force to an object without touching it

The laws of static charge

Opposite charges attract like charges repel neutral objects are attracted to charged objects

The laws of static charge

Opposite charges attract like charges repel neutral objects are attracted to charged objects

Charging by conduction

Charging a neutral object by touching it to a charged object

Charging by induction

If you move the charged object away the leaves will go back to their original position

Charging by induction

If you move the charged object away the leaves will go back to their original position

Attraction of neutral objects

I charged balloon sticks to the wall because positive charge is in do used on the surface of the wall
