Electricity A. Electric Charge1. Static electricity is theaccumulation of excess electriccharges on an object.a. More e¯ = negative chargeb. More protons = + charge2. Charge is conserved (e¯ movefrom one object to another).
. Law of Chargesa. Opposite chargesattract.b. Like charges repel.4. Electric fieldsa. Electric fields exert force onobjects within the field.b. Weaker with distance.
. Transferring electric chargea. Conductors: e¯ move easily.b. Insulators: hold e¯ tightly.c. Contact charging isdone when two materials arerubbed together (best withinsulators).d. Charging by induction is donewhen one charged object
