Done By Eugene Yeo (33) 4 Engineering Physics Chapter 16 Static Electricity

LAW OF ELECTROSTATICS

Static Electricity is defined as an electrical charge caused by an imbalance of electrons on the surface of a material. This imbalance of electrons produces an electric field that can be measured and that can influence other objects at a distance.

Static electricity happens when the amounts of positive and negative electric charges within a material are not perfectly equal.

The law of electrostatic states that like charges repel and unlike charges attract.

CURRENT

Electrical charges include electrons, protons and ions.

Electric current is the flow of charges from the positive end to a negative end

ELECTRIC FIELD

An electric field is a region where an electric charge experiences an electric force

It can be illustrated by drawing electric lines of forces
