Mindmap on Static Electricity By Harith Bahren

Principles of Electrostatics

Charging by Rubbing

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

Charging by Induction

Equal amounts of opposite charge

Laws of Electrostatics

2 Types of electric Charge

Positive and Negative charge

Like charges repel and unlike charges attract

Electric Field

A region in which an electric charge experiences a force

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

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

The number of lines drawn leaving a positive charge or ending on a negative charge is proportional to the magnitude of the charge, No two field lines can cross each other
