4.1.2. Opposite static charges attract and like charges repel.

5. Circuits

5.1. I know that a circuit has to have a load, source and transport. There are two types of circuits, parallel and series.

5.1.1. Short circuits are dangerous circuits that have no load and only a source these circuits can catch fire if left on too long.
