• Slide 1
• Static Electricity Electrical Charge: Is a concentration of electricity
• Slide 2
• Unlike Charges Attract one another
• Slide 3
• Like Charges Repel one another
• Slide 4
• Electric Fields The effect an electric charge has on other charges in the space around it.
• Slide 5
• Strength of Electric Field Amount of charge that produces the field Amount of charge that produces the field And the distance from the charge And the distance from the charge
• Slide 6
• Static Electricity and Charging Static electricity: is the study of the behavior of electric charges, including how charge is transferred between objects.
• Slide 7
• Charges can be Transferred Friction Friction Contact Contact Induction Induction
• Slide 8
• Charging by Friction Transferring of electrons
• Slide 9
• Charging by Contact Charging by contact occurs when someone actually touches another object and the electrons are then transferred (Van de Graaf Generator)
• Slide 10
• Charging By Induction A transfer of charge without contact between materials.
• Slide 11
• Static Discharge Occurs when a pathway through which charges can move forms suddenly. An example would by lightning.
• Slide 12
• Electric Current & Ohms Law
• Slide 13
• Electric Current The rate at which charges flows through the lamp or wires. The rate at which charges flows through the lamp or wires. Current: is how much electric charge flows past a pint in a circuit during a given time. Current: is how much electric charge flows past a pint in a circuit during a given time. Current is measured in ampes. Current is measured in ampes.
• Slide 14
• Two Types of Current Direct Current (DC) Direct Current (DC) Alternating Current (AC) Alternating Current (AC)
• Slide 15
• Direct Current Charge flows in one direction Charge flows in one direction An example would be a flashlight or most battery powered devices. An example would be a flashlight or most battery powered devices.

• Slide 26
• Ohms Law Founded by German Scientist Georg Ohm. Founded by German Scientist Georg Ohm. First determined how resistance and current affect voltage. First determined how resistance and current affect voltage. Discovered that voltage is not the same everywhere in a circuit. Discovered that voltage is not the same everywhere in a circuit. Hypothesized that resistance reduces the voltage. Hypothesized that resistance reduces the voltage.
• Slide 27
• Ohms Law Ohms Law: the voltage (V) in a circuit equals the product of the current (I) and the resistance (R). Ohms Law: the voltage (V) in a circuit equals the product of the current (I) and the resistance (R). V = I x R or I = V/R V = I x R or I = V/R Increasing the voltage increases the current. Keeping the same voltage and increasing the resistance decreases the current. Increasing the voltage increases the current. Keeping the same voltage and increasing the resistance decreases the current.
