Electric Charge and Static Electricity ELECTRICITY----STATIC AND CURRENT 31, 2012 Objectives: Describe how charged objects interact by using the law of electric charges. Describe one way in which an object can become charged. Do Now: What are the parts of an atom? Do you know? Homework: Energy Project Due tomorrow!!! Make sure you email it to me by class tomorrow or it will be late!
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17
Law of Electric Charges Like charges repel; Opposite charges attract
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Electric Charge Electricity is the energy caused by the flow of electrons. Charges Exert Force Atoms are composed of particles with electric charge. The law of electric charges states that like charges repel and opposite charges attract. Chapter 17
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Electric Charge, continued The Force Between Protons and Electrons Because protons and electrons have opposite charges, they are attracted to each other. The Electric Force and the Electric Field The force between charged objects is an electric force. An electric field is the region around a charged object in which an electric force is exerted on another charged object. Chapter 17
March 5, 2013 Do Now: Using the Law of Electric Charges, predict what will happen: – A B C 1.Between A & B? 2.Between B & C? 3.Between A & C? Objective: define static electricity and describe the 3 ways an object can become charged! Homework: Go to Mrs. Anicito’s page and open the lightning assignment. Complete for Thursday! + + _
Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17 Static Electricity : A BUILD UP OF CHARGE (electrons) on an object! Electric Discharge: loss of static electricity Detecting Charge You can use a device called an electroscope to see if something is charged.
Electric Charge and Static Electricity Charge It! Friction Charging by friction happens when electrons are “wiped” from one object onto another. Conduction Charging by conduction happens when electrons move from one object to another by direct contact. Induction Charging by induction happens when charges in an uncharged metal object are rearranged without direct contact with a charged object. Chapter 17
Static electricity by friction 1. Friction: build up of charge by rubbing one object against another. Rubbing hair with balloon
2. Conduction: build up of charge by direct contact between 2 objects
3. Induction: build up of charge by force of attraction or repulsion WITHOUT touching one object to the other ( through open space ) Demo with Salt
Use the word bank to select your BEST answer. FRICTION (f) INDUCTION (i) CONDUCTION (c) 1._____Electrons transferred from one object to another by direct contact. 2.____ Charges on an object rearrange without direct contact when a charged object is near it. 3. ____Rub 2 objects together. The electrons are transferred. 4. ____Rub a balloon on a wool sweater, and place it near a wall. 5. ____ Walking across a carpet.
Write the letter that most applies for each word. 1.___ RepelA. Objects with opposite charges come together. 2.___ ElectroscopeB. Detects charges. 3.___ Attract C. Objects with like charges jump apart. Answer the questions. State the Law of Electric Charges: _______________________________________ ____________________________________ List the three ways in which an object can become charged: 5) 6)7)
When an object becomes charged, one object ________ electrons, and one object _______ electrons. multiple choice: _____ Electric force is found between a) Charged objects b) credit cards c) criminals _____ The area around a charged particle that can exert a force is called : a) electric force b) electric shock c) electric field 11. ______ The build up of electric charges on an object is a) current electricity b) static electricity c ) electric discharge
E. True /False. CORRECT the False!! 17.____ A lightning bolt is an example of electric discharge. 18.____ An electroscope can tell if the charge is pos. or neg. 19.____ Static electricity is NOT as noticeable in the summer because of the dryness in the air. 20._____ Lightning is a result of the negative charges in the clouds being attracted to the negative charges on the ground.
Current electricity Current is a flow of electric charges. It is not a build up of charge that is discharged. All current elec. needs a circuit—a pathway for electric charges to flow.. All circuits must have at least 3 parts : 1) wires, 2) a source and 3) a load(s).
Parts of a circuit wires Source of electricity Load
Conductors Conductor: a material that easily allows the flow of electric charges. It gives very little resistance to the flow of charge. ( metals – copper, aluminum, etc )
Insulators Insulators: do not easily allow for the flow of electric charges through them. Ex: glass, plastic, certain rubber materials, cloth.

Types of circuits http://www.brainpop.com/science/energy/ele ctriccircuits/http://www.brainpop.com/scienc e/energy/electriccircuits/http://www.brainpop.com/scienc e/energy/electriccircuits/
Law of electric Charges Like Charges repel; Unlike charges attract.
2 main types of circuits 1. Series Circuit: only 1 path for the electric charges to flow 2. Parallel Circuit: has More than one path for the electric charges to flow.
Resistance This is what “slows down” the movement of the electric charges … so they hit each other more… What do you think could ADD resistance in a circuit ? Add more loads to the same circuit Heat Longer wires Thinner wires
Circuit Mini Lab Take a sheet of computer paper. You have 4 drawings, 4 circuits to build, and 4 questions to answer… Let’s do the drawings together, then you can build, and answer the questions: You Label: wires, source, load, direction, terminals, switch 1. 3. 2. 4.
2. Parallel Circuit: has more than 1 path for electric charges to flow, so if 1 load goes “out,” the other loads will still work !
Alternating Current - AC Electric charges move back and forth—homes and buildings. Ex: 60 V one way and 60 V the other way,= 120 Volts
Let’s recap: 2 types circuits 2 types current direction Series Direct current 1 way Parallel Alternating currentBack and forth Direct with a battery One way
BATTERIES Electrolytes- liquids/acids that cause a chem. reaction, that releases electric charges Batteries (usually) are DC- direct current- where the electrons flow only in 1 direction. CONVERT CHEM. ENERGY TO ELECTRICITY. 2 TYPES: A)DRY CELLS B)WET CELLS Dry cells have paste- like electrolytes, and these are the batteries you are used to using. Wet cells have liquid electrolytes. ( car batteries)

Circuit breakers and fuses Circuit breaker Circuit breaker-open a circuit to keep from Overload. Plug fuses fuses
CURRENT RESISTANCE VOLTAGE SYMBOL : I UNITS: Amperes R or OHM’S V Volts WHAT IS IT? The # of electrons. the rate at which charges pass a given point The opposition to the flow of electrons; High resistance has more opposition to the flow 4 THINGS THAT AFFECT R: Thin/thick wires Temperature Length Wire Type of wire- Copper-good conductor; decrease R; Iron- poor conductor; increase R The energy of each electron. Low voltage = little energy. High Voltage = High energy More electrons=more current; less electrons = less current ↓ Thickness = ↑ R ↑ Temperature =↑ R ↑ Length = ↑ R
Ohm’s law I = V/ R Current = voltage/ resistance. Discuss wires and resistance!!
