Glossary Terms Chapter 10

  1. Electricity
    • Electricity is a form of energy resulting from the interaction of two charged particles, such as electrons and protons.
    • elec
  2. Static Charge
    • Static charge is an electric charge that stays on the surface of an object, instead of flowing away quickly.
    • staticdischarge
  3. Charging by Friction
    • Charging by friction is the process of two different objects being rubbed together, producing a static net on each object.
    • charge+by+friction
  4. Electrostatic Series
    • Electrostatic series is a list based of a materials ability to hold onto electrons.

  5. Insulator
    • An insulator is an object that doesn't allow electrons to easily go between atoms.
    • Insulator_0449
  6. Conductor
    • A conductor is an object that does allow electrons to easily go between atoms.
    • copper%20conductor2
  7. Semiconductor
    • A semiconductor is a conductor that allows electrons to easily go between atoms, but not as well as a regular conductor.
    • semiconductor_k
  8. Ground
    • Ground is an object that either takes a lot of electrons from an object or supplies a lot of electrons to another object, which makes the object neutral.
    • Ground_Symbol
  9. Electroscope
    • An electroscope is a device used to detect the presence of an electric charge.

  10. Charging by Contact
    • Charging by Contact generates a charge on a neutral through the contact of a charged object. There is no actual contact involved.
