electrons negatively charged subatomic particle that circulates around the outside of the nucleus; ones that move during charge motion
valence electrons electrons in the outermost shell
strong force the force that holds the nucleus together
conductors materials that allow charges to flow easily
insulators materials that do not allow charges to flow easily
semiconductors materials that have characteristics of both conductors and insulators
superconductors materials that will conduct electricity below a certain temperature with zero resistance
conduction when charges transfer between two objects due to direct contact
induction when charges move because of the proximity of another charged object
friction when charges transfer between objects due to rubbing two materials together
