Just like the force due to gravity, the force due to electric charges can act over great distances. Keep in mind that most forces we deal with in everyday life are not like this. We mostly deal with "contact forces". objects tou

From the time of Aristotle (384-322 BC) until the late 1500's, gravity was believed to act differently on different objects. This was based on Aristotle's observations of doing things like dropping a metal bar and a feather at

Two branches in physics examine the motion of objects: Kinematics: describes the motion of objects, without looking at the cause of the motion (kinematics is the first unit of Physics 20). Dynamics: relates the motion of objects to the

Lesson 13: Voltage in a Uniform Field
Most of the time if we are doing experiments with electric fields, we use parallel plates to ensure that
the field is uniform (the same everywhere).
This carries over to our study of voltage. If we use parallel plate

Lesson 56: Pressure (AP Only)
Although we don't think about it, we live at the bottom of a roughly 100 km deep sea of air.
Air is made of molecules, so it has mass. Under the effect of gravity, it quite literally weighs
