1. Principles of Electrostatics

1.1. Charging by Rubbing

1.1.1. The atom that loses an electron is now a positive ion, and the atom that receives an electron is a negative ion

1.2. Charging by Induction

1.2.1. Equal amounts of opposite charge

2. Laws of Electrostatics

2.1. 2 Types of electric Charge

2.2. Positive and Negative charge

2.3. Like charges repel and unlike charges attract

3. Electric Field

3.1. A region in which an electric charge experiences a force

3.2. An electric field line is the path a positive charge would take if its free to move

3.3. The line must begin from positive charges and end on negative charges

3.3.1. The number of lines drawn leaving a positive charge or ending on a negative charge is proportional to the magnitude of the charge

3.3.1.1. No two field lines can cross each other
