Atoms The smallest particle of an element that has the properties of that element.
Electrons A negatively charged particle that orbits the nucleus of an atom.
Protons A positively charged particle that is part of the atom's nucleus.
Neutrons A particle with no charge that is part of the atom's nucleus.
Static Electricity A buildup of charges on an object.
Static Discharge The loss of static electricity as electric charges move off an object.
Electric Field The field around charged particles that exerts a force on other charged particles.
Friction A force that is exerted when two objects are rubbed together; electrons are the only particles transferred when rubbing.
Conduction A method of charging an object by allowing electrons to flow directly from one object to another.
Induction A method of charging an object by means of the electric field of another object.
Conservation of Charge The law that states that charges are neither created nor destroyed.
Electroscope An instrument used to detect electric charge.
