Electric Charge and Static electricity

Electric Charge property that leads to electromagnetic interactions between particles that make up matter
Static Electricity Buildup of electric charge on an object
Electrical Conductor material which charges can move freely
Electrical Insulator charges cannot move easily
Semiconductor special class of materials that conduct electric charge better than electric insulators but not as well as electric conductors.
electric current rate of flow of electric charges
voltage amount of work required to move each unit of charge between 2 points.
resistance opposition to the flow of electric charges
electric circuit complete, closed path through which electric charges can flow
series circuit all parts are connected in a row that forms one path for electric charges to follow
parallel circuit electric charges have more than one path that they can follow
magnet any material that attracts iron or objects made of iron
magnetic force push or pull
magnetic pole 1 or 2 points that oppose magnetic qualities
magnetic field area surrounding a magnet where magnetic forces can be detected
electromagnetism interaction between electricity and magnetism
solenoid coil of wire that carries an electric current and therefore produces a magnetic field
electromagnet wrapping a solenoid around an iron core
electric motor changes energy to mechanical energy
electromagnetic induction using a magnetic field to create an electric current in a wire
transformer induction to increase of decrease the voltage of alternating current
electric generator induction to change mechanical energy into electrical energy
electronic device able to control the flow of electrons using integrated circuit
integrated circuit tiny chip of specially treated silicon containing many circuit parts
analog signal signals that changes continuously in a given range
digital signal sequence of separate values
computer device that can accept data and instructions and output the results
