# Ch 17: CSET: Electricity and Magnetism

This chapter can help you boost your knowledge of electricity and magnetism. Through video lessons and self-assessment quizzes, you'll gain a solid foundation for the CSET Science test questions on these topics.

## CSET Science: Electricity and Magnetism - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter can help you develop your knowledge of the relationship between electricity and magnetism in preparation for the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) Science test. You'll also learn to use this knowledge to understand many applications, such as generators and motors. These video lessons cover topics including:

• Description and examples of electrostatic and magnetostatic phenomena
• Electric charge and force: definition, repulsion and attraction
• Definition, unit and types of electric current
• Magnetic force: definition, poles and dipoles
• Magnetic fields: definition, how they are created and how they affect moving charges
• Relating electric current to magnetic fields and the application of these relationships
• Components and types of electric circuit fundamentals
• Design and interpret simple series and parallel circuits
• Definition and calculating power, voltage differences, current and resistance in simple circuits

With guidance from expert instructors, you'll get a firm foundation in the principles and uses of electricity and magnetism. These engaging video lessons will enable you to understand applications of these forces and prepare for the CSET.

### Objectives of the CSET Science: Electricity and Magnetism Chapter

Applicants for some types of California teaching credentials must pass CSET tests. Questions relating to electricity and magnetism are on the General Science: Subtest I. This subtest has 58 multiple-choice questions, and six of those are about electricity and magnetism. You'll be able to check your knowledge of these topics through the self-assessment quizzes at the end of the lessons as well as get a feel for the actual format of the test questions.
