 What are the effectsof moving charges?
Electric Charges
Most atoms have a neutral charge. They have the samenumber of protons and electrons. Protons have a positivecharge, and electrons have a negative charge. The number of protons usually stays the same. But atoms often gain and loseelectrons. When this happens, the charge is no longer neutral.
You can see the results of charges moving. If you ruba balloon on clean, dry hair on a dry day, electronsleave your hair. They go to the balloon. The balloonnow has more electrons than protons, so it has anegative charge. The balloon will stick to your hair because the hair now has a positive charge. Its chargeis positive because it has lost electrons. Oppositecharges attract. If you rub two balloons on your hair and then try to put them together, they will push apart.This happens because the balloons have the samecharge. Like charges repel.The flow of charges from your hair to the balloonis electricity. The electricity that flows through wires iscalled current.
is the flow of electrical chargesthrough a material.
Electrons movearound theprotons andneutrons of anatom’s nucleus.
