Chapter 21 – Electric Charge and Electric Field - Electric Charge - Conductors, Insulators and Induced Charges - Coulomb’s Law - Electric Field and Electric Forces - Electric Field Calculations - Electric Field Lines - Electric Dipoles
1. Electric Charge Electrostatics: interaction between electric charges that are at rest. Two + charges and two – charges repel each other. + charge and – charge attract each other.

Electric Charge and the Structure of Matter Structure of atoms: electron (-) proton (+) neutron (uncharged) Combinations of quarks ( ± 1/3 e, ±2/3 e b e = electron charge) = Nucleus -Electrons (-) held within atom by attractive forces from (+) nucleus. - Protons & neutrons held by an attractive interaction: strong nuclear force (short range) >> electric repulsion of protons. - Magnitude of charge of electron = magnitude of charge of proton.
- Neutral atom: # of electrons = # of protons. - Atomic number: # of protons or electrons in a neutral atom. - Ion: atom that has lost (+) or gained (-) one or more electrons. - Ionization: process of gaining or loosing electrons.
