Term: Conduction Definition: Electrons from source move into substance Term: Induction Definition: Electrons repel due to proximity of another charged object Term: Coulomb Definition: Measure of charge (Q) equal to 6.25x10^18 electrons Term: One electron has a charge of -1.60x 10^-19 coul ( Definition: Coulomb Term: I micro coulomb Definition: (uc= 10^18) often used because coulomb is such a large change
Term: Coulomb's Law of Electrostractic Definition: The force between two point charges is directly proportional to these magnitudes and inversely proportional to square of the distance between.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
