|The study of electric charges at rest.
|A force that one charge exerts on another. When the charges are the same sign, they repel; when the charges are opposite, they attract.
|The fundamental electrical property to which one reaction event stimulates one or more additional reaction events to keep the process going
|Conservation of Charge
|The principle that net electric charge is neither created nor destroyed but is transferable from one material to another.
|The relationship among eletrical force, charges, and distance: The electrical force between two charges varies directly as the product of the charges and inversely as the square of distance between them.
|SI unit of charge. One coulomb (symbol C) is equal to the total charge of 6.24 X 10 to the 18th electrons
|(a) Material through which heat can be transferred. (b)Material, usually a metal, through which electric charge can flow. Good conductors of heat are generally good charge conductors.
|(a) A material that is a poor conductor of heat that delays the transfer of heat. (b) A material that is a poor conductor of electricity.
|Material that can be made to behave as either a conductor or an insulator of electricity.
|Term applied to a voltage, electric field, or magnetic field that is created due to a change in or motion through a magnetic field or electric field.
|The charging of an object wothout direct contact.
|Allowing charges to move freely along a connection between a conductor and the ground.
|Term applied to an atom or molecule in which the charges are aligned so that one side is slightly more positive than negative than the opposite side.
