Electricity and Magnetism ( chapter seven vocab)

Charging by contact A transfer of electric charge between objects in contact
Charging by induuction The rearrangement of eletric charge due to the presence of an eletric field
Insulators Materials in which eletric charges don't move easily
Conductors Materials in which eletric charge moves easily
Static charge The imbalence of eletric charge on an object
Eletric discharge The movement of static charge from one place to another
Eletric current the flow of eletric charge
Eletric circut A closed path in which eletric charges can flow
Eletric resistance The measure of howdifficult it is for elecrons to flow in an object
Voltage A measure of the amount of eletrical energy transferred to one another in a circut
Series circut devices conected so that there is only one closed path for the current to follow
Parellel circut Devices that are connected so there is more than one closed path for the current to follow
Magnetic domain A group of atoms that have their magnetic poles pointing in the same direction
electromagnet a current-carrying wire wrapped around an iron core
electromagnetic induction The production of an eletric current by moving a magnet and a loop relative to each other
