Charging by Contact involved touching a negatively charged object to a neutral object
Charging by Induction is a method used to charge an object without actually touching the object to any other charged object.
Circuit a roughly circular line, route, or movement that starts and finishes at the same place.
Conductor A material through which electric current can pass
Electric Current is a flow of electric charge
Electrical Power is the rate at which electrical energy is transferred by an electric circuit
Insulator a substance that does not readily allow the passage of heat or sound
Law of Conservation of Charge a principle stating that the total electric charge of an isolated system is fixed.
Ohm's Law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points.
Parallel Circuit is a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more paths before recombining to complete the circuit.
Resistance the refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument.
Series Circuit is a closed circuit in which the current follows one path
Static Electricity a stationary electric charge, typically produced by friction, that causes sparks or crackling or the attraction of dust or hair.
Voltage Difference the difference in electric potential energy between two points per unit electric charge
