Physics 30 Unit 2

Coulomb's Law The magnitude of electric force between two points/charges.
Electric Charge A property that determines electrical behaviour, force exerted, and force experienced.
Charge of Proton Positive (+)
Charge of Electron Negative (-)
Law of Charges Like charges repel; Opposite charges attract
Conductor A material that can transmit electric charges.
Electrostatic Charging The changing or passing on of charge via friction, contact, induction, or polarisation.
Electric Lines of Force Imaginary lines formed by connecting electric field vectors at many points. Magnitude indicated by direction and proximity. Originate from positive charges and terminate at negative charges.
In a uniform magnetic field, a particle who's initial veloticy is perpendicular to the field moves in what way? A circular motion.
Formula: Magnetic force on current carrying wire. F=IlB Force = Current*Length of Wire*Magnetic Field Strength
Left-Hand Rule Point your fingers from North (Base of hand) to South (Fingertips). Point thumb in direction of particle. Palm indicates direction of magnetic field. Adjust as needed.
Magnetic field between two wires? 0
Magnitude of Electron's Charge? e = 1.60e-19 C
Formula: Coulomb's Law Fe = (kq1q2)/r^2
Formula: Electric Field E = F/q
Coulomb's Constant k = 8.99e9N*m^2/C^2
Charge positively? By removing electrons.
Charge negatively? By adding electrons.
Unlike charges ____ each other attract
Like charges ____ each other repel

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
