Basic lessons about charges: Uncharged objects show no force Similar charges repel Opposite charges attract Force decreases with increasing distance away Charges exert force without touching! Only 3 examples in nature: Gravity, Charge, and Magnets

Basic Properties of Electric Charges Charge comes in two types, arbitrarily called “positive” and “negative” . Benjamin Franklin and others Ordinary matter is “full of charge” (electrons and protons), but has nearly the same amount of positive and negative charge – it is nearly “neutral” (having no net charge )

Atoms and Ions : Neutral Atom – equal numbers of electrons and protons Positive and negative ions – subtracting or adding electrons Charged rods involve ions

Electrons, Protons and Neutrons Basic ingredients of matter: electrons q e = - 1.6 × 10 -19 Coulombs ( more later ) protons q P = + 1.6 × 10 -19 Coulombs neutrons q N = 0 |q e | = |q P | to one part in 10 21 - or else galaxies blow up! Sign of q e is just a convention - a bit unfortunate for some later formulas |Charge is conserved: the net sum of charge in any closed system is constant

Insulators: The electrons are bound to the atoms. The electrons cannot move. Conductors: The electrons are free to move within a conductor. In an isolated atom the electrons are bound to a nucleus. In a conductor the electrons form a fluid.
