Ch 9: ScienceFusion Motion, Forces, and Energy Unit 3.1: Electric Charge & Static Electricity

About This Chapter

The Electric Charge & Static Electricity chapter of this ScienceFusion Motion, Forces, and Energy Companion Course helps students learn the essential lessons associated with electric charge and static electricity. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Electric Charge & Static Electricity textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in the ScienceFusion Electric Charge & Static Electricity chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons with this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the electric charge and static electricity topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • What electric charges and static electricity are and what generates them
  • To identify and explain electric force fields
  • Understand what charged particles are and how they can do work
  • To identify and explain static electricity
  • To identify good and poor conductors and insulators

Electric Charge and Force: Definition, Repulsion & Attraction

1. Electric Charge and Force: Definition, Repulsion & Attraction

Have you ever wondered what electricity is and where it comes from? Have you ever been zapped by static electricity and wondered how it got there? We'll answer all of these questions in this lesson on electric charge and force!

Electric Force Fields and the Significance of Arrow Direction & Spacing

2. Electric Force Fields and the Significance of Arrow Direction & Spacing

Did you know that force fields don't just exist in science fiction movies? In this lesson, we'll explore the electric force fields that surround charged particles and how we can draw diagrams that represent them.

Electric Potential: Charge Collections and Volt Unit

3. Electric Potential: Charge Collections and Volt Unit

In this lesson, we'll find out that electric charges can be rather lazy until something motivates them to get work done. Find out what gives electric charges the potential to do work and how we measure that potential with something called voltage.

What is Static Electricity? - Definition, Causes & Uses

4. What is Static Electricity? - Definition, Causes & Uses

In this lesson you will learn what static electricity is, what causes it, and what conditions prevent static electricity from occurring. You'll also see some fun and interesting real world situations and applications that involve static electricity.

Insulators and Conductors: Examples, Definitions & Qualities

5. Insulators and Conductors: Examples, Definitions & Qualities

In this lesson, we'll explore the reasons that some materials conduct electrical energy with ease while others block it almost completely. We'll also talk about the property of conductivity and some everyday examples of insulators and conductors.
