Science - Static Electricity

  1. Define electricity
    This is a form of energy because it can be converted into other forms of energy and can cause objects to move
  2. Define current electricity
    This is a steady flow of charge through wires and circuits
  3. Define static electricity
    This involves electric charge collecting in one place and sometimes suddenly jumping from one place to another
  4. What is a conductor?
    This is a substance that allows charged particles to flow through them eg. metals such as copper
  5. What is an insulator?
    This is a substance that does not allow charged particles to flow through them easily eg. rubber and plastic
  6. List the different uses of static electricity
