Charges can move from one place to another
Electrical potential is the amount of electrical potential energy per unit charge at a certain position in an electrical field.
Conductors are materials such as metals that electric charge passes through very easily.
A volt is equal to one joule of energy per coulomb of charge.
Insulators are materials such as plastic and rubber that do not allow energy to flow through them.
Static charges have potential energy.
electric potential energy is energy that is stored in an object.
Different materials can affect charge movement.
electric potential is a charged particle that is closer to a particle with the same charge.
Resistance is how electricity moves through certain objects better than others.
Charge movement is how electric charges move equally.
Resistance is measured in ohms.
superconductors are materials that have practically no electrical resistance at all.
Grounding is a harmless low resistance path to the ground for electricity to fallow.
Materials can become electrically charged
Electrical charge is a property that allows an object to extract and electric force on another object without touching it.
A static charge is a buildup of electric charge
An electrical field is a space around a particle through which an electric charge can exert this force.
Induction is the buildup of charge without direct contact.
Static charges are caused by the movement of electrons.
Electric charge is a property of matter
Charging can be caused by contact.
Materials can affect static charging.
Charge has polarization
Technology such as photocopiers use static charges.
Electric current is a flow of charge
