Unit 7: Electrostatics

Electrostatics involve the attractions and repulsion of charged particles.  This unit will show you why a balloon sticks to a wall and by what force.

1: Conduction, Induction, and Friction

Learn how objects can be charged different ways and the resulting phenomenon that occurs because of charge including lightning.

2: Coulomb's Law: Calculating the Electrostatic Force

Learn how to use Coulomb's Law and how to calculate the electric force felt on charged objects when a distance apart.

3: Electric Fields

Learn how do draw and calculate electric fields

4: Potential Difference (Voltage)

The desire of a single charge to move from an area of high charge to an area with less charge
