In this unit we will cover the nature of charge, methods of charging, electric force, and electric potential energy.
PODCAST 1: Introduction to Electrostatics, Conductors, Insulators, and Methods of Charging (Friction, Conduction, Induction, and Polarization)
PODCAST 2: Electric Force (Coulomb’s Law)
PODCAST 3: Electric Fields
PODCAST 4: Electric Potential Energy, Electric Potential, and Potential Difference
- How to charge an electroscope by induction
- PhET Charges and Fields (Be sure to check “Show E-field”)
- PhET Electric Field Hockey (Lots of fun! To make sure it helps you learn, be sure to check “Trace” and “Field.”)
