18.1 The Origin of Electricity The electrical nature of matter is inherent in atomic structure. (mass of a proton) (mass of a neutron) (mass of an electron) (electric charge of an electron) Coulomb An atom consists of small, relatively small nucleus that contains protons and neutrons. Surrounding the nucleus is a diffuse cloud of orbiting electrons. kg 10 673 . 1 27 p m kg 10 675 . 1 27 n m kg 10 11 . 9 31 e m C 10 60 . 1 19 e

18.1 The Origin of Electricity In nature, atoms are normally found with equal numbers of protons and electrons, so they are electrically neutral. By adding or removing electrons from matter it will acquire a net electric charge (q) with magnitude equal to e times the number of electrons added or removed, N . An atom consists of small, relatively small nucleus that contains protons and neutrons. Surrounding the nucleus is a diffuse cloud of orbiting electrons. Ne q

18.2 Charged Objects and the Electric Force When an ebonite rod is rubbed against animal fur, electrons from atoms of the fur are transferred to the rod. It is possible to transfer electric charge from one object to another. The body that loses electrons has an excess of positive charge ( positive ion ), while the body that gains electrons ( negative ion ) has an excess of negative charge. LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ELECTRIC CHARGE During any process, the net electric charge of an isolated system remains constant (is conserved).

    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.
