conservation of charge hte principle that net electric charge is neither created nor destroyed byt can be transferred
coulombs law the relationship with electrical force, charge, distance: the force between two charges varies as the product of the charges and inversly as the squareof the distance between them
coulombs si unit of charge
conductor materical through which heat can be transferred.
insulator a material that is a poor conductor of heat
semiconductor materical that behaves like a conductor and insulator.
induced term applied to electric charge that has been redistributed on an object because the charge nearby.
