What is static electricity?

Study of electric charges that can be collected and held in one place

What are neutrals in terms of atoms?

Objects that contain an equal number of protons and electrons

Define electric charge.

Fundamental property of matter that allows particles to react to electromagnetic fields

How do insulators differ from conductors?

Insulators lack conduction electrons, making charge flow difficult, while conductors have free electrons that allow electricity flow

What is the SI unit for electric charge?

Coulombs (C)

How do electrons move in conductors?

Free electrons are weakly bonded to atoms, allowing them to move freely throughout the material

What is Coulomb's Law?

The force between two charges is directly proportional to the magnitude of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

What is the value of Coulomb's constant (k)?

8.99 x 10^9 Nm^2/C^2

What is the charge of an electron?

1.602 x 10^-19 Coulombs

How many electrons are present in one negative Coulomb of charge?

6.24 x 10^18 electrons

Define Electric Field.

It is a physical phenomenon created by a charge that transmits a force between two charges.

What are Electric Field Lines used for?

To represent the actual field in the space around a charge.

This quiz covers topics related to static electricity, atomic structure, and electric charge. Explore concepts such as discharge of static electricity, atoms containing protons, electrons, and neutrons, and the imbalance of protons and electrons in electrically charged objects.
