Electric Forces and Fields Chapter 17
ELECTRIC CHARGE Section 1
Chemistry Review Atoms are small particles that make up matter Atoms are neutral when they have equal numbers of ______________and _____________ Atoms can lose electrons, because electrons are located in the _________________ Protons are in the _______________and do not leave the atom When atoms gain electrons, they become _____________ charged ions When atoms lose electrons, they become ______________ charged ions
Electric forces and charges The electric force is one of four fundamental forces. The electric force is a field force. The electric force is the result of the interaction between electric charges.
Properties of Electric Charge There are two kinds of electric charges. Protons have a positive charge; electrons negative. Opposite charges attract; Like charges repel.
Properties of Electric Charge Electric charge is conserved. When a neutral atom gives up an electron, it becomes a positive ion. The electron is the smallest unit of charge that can be isolated AKA elementary charge - +
Insulators and Conductors A conductor is a material that allows charges to flow easily throughout the material. Most metals are conductors. An insulators is a material that does not allow charges to flow easily throughout the material. Glass, rubber, silk and plastic are examples of insulators.
Transfer of Electric Charge: Contact – (friction and Conduction) Conductors and insulators can be charged by contact. Example- Rubbing rubber rod with fur, glass rod with silk. = charging by friction
18.4 Charging by Contact and by Induction Charging by contact.
Transfer of Electric Charge: Contact – (friction and Conduction)
LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ELECTRIC CHARGE During any process, the net electric charge of an isolated system remains constant (is conserved).
What is happening in this diagram There are two kinds of electric charge The two balloons must have the same charge and as a result, repel each other like charges repel A rubbed balloon and your hair do not have the same charge and as a result, they are attracted to each other Unlike charges attract
III - Semiconductors These materials have properties of both insulators and conductors. Silicon and Germanium are examples of semiconductors used in electrical devises.
VI - Superconductors These materials appear to show no resistance The electrons passing through a super conductor generate no heat Ex. include metals that are perfect conductors when at or below certain temperatures.
ELECTRIC FORCE Section 2
Electric Force When two charged objects are brought close together, they may experience forces of attraction or repulsion. The closer the two objects are to each other, the stronger the force between them. The greater the mass (number) of the charges the stronger the force between them
Magnitude and direction of the electric force depends on: The amount of charge carried by each object. Charge is measured in Coulombs (C). An electron (negative elementary charge) has a charge (q) of x C. A proton (positive elementary charge) has a charge (q) of 1.60 x C.
Coulomb’s Law The force between 2 charged objects can be calculated using coulomb’s Law K c = 8.99 X 10 9 N.m 2 /C 2

Example 1 What is the magnitude of the electric force between a proton and an electron in a hydrogen atom? The two particles are separated by a distance of 5.3 x m on average. G: q 1 = x C, q 2 = 1.60 x C, r = 5.3 x m, K c = 8.99 x 10 9 N.m 2 /C 2 U: F electric = ? E: S: S: 8.2 x N An attractive force!!

What will happen if a positively charged rod is suspended freely in air and another positively charged rod is brought near the suspended rod? A.The more you bring the rod closer to the suspended rod, the more it will attract. B.The more you bring the rod closer to the suspended rod, the less it will attract. C.The more you bring the rod closer to the suspended rod, the more it will repel. D.The more you bring the rod closer to the suspended rod, the less it will repel.

The Electric Field Section 6
Electric Field The electric field is a field force per unit charge. An electric field exists in a region if a stationary charged object (test charge – usually positive) experiences an electric force because of its charge.
Electric Field Vector The electric field at any point is a vector. The direction of the electric field is the direction in which a small positive charge would move if placed there. The magnitude of the electric field (E) is the force per unit charge at that point: The electric field is measured in N/C.
18.6 The Electric Field It is the surrounding charges that create the electric field at a given point.
18.6 The Electric Field Electric fields from different sources add as vectors.
Electric Field Lines Electric field lines are lines of force providing a map of the electric field in the space surrounding electric charges. Electric field lines represent the strength and direction of an electric field at any point around a charged object. Electric field lines do not really exist, however, they offer a useful means of analyzing electric fields.
Electric Field Lines Electric field lines run in the direction of the field at each point. Lines begin on positive charges (or infinity) and end at negative charges (or infinity). Lines do not cross. The magnitude of the field is shown by the number of lines in a given area.

18.7 Electric Field Lines The number of lines leaving a positive charge or entering a negative charge is proportional to the magnitude of the charge. Electric Field Lines – sketch this!!
