electric force the attraction or repulsion between electric charges
electric field the region around a charged object where the object's electric force interacts with other charged objects
static electricity a buildup of charges on an object
conservation of charge the law that states that charges are neither created nor destroyed but only transferred from one material to another
friction a method of charging an object by rubbing it against another object; the force that one object exerts on another when the two rub against each other
conduction a method of charging an object by allowing electrons to flow by direct contact from one object to another object
induction a method of charging an object by means of the electric field of another object; the objects have no direct contact
static discharge the loss of static electricity as electric charges transfer from one object to another
electric current the continuous flow of electric charges through a material
electric circuit a complete, unbroken path through which electric charges can flow
conductor a material through which charges can easily flow
insulator a material through which charges cannot easily flow
voltage the difference in electrical potential energy between two places in a circuit
voltage source a device that creates an electrical potential energy difference in an electric circuit; batteries and generators are voltage sources
resistance the measurement of how difficult it is for charges to flow through a material
