Charge can neither be created nor destroyed
Positive ions  fewer electrons than protons
Negative ions  fewer protons than electrons
Electric Charge is measured in Coulombs
6.3x1018 electrons make 1.0 C of charge
6.3x1018 protons make +1.0 C of charge
Charge can neither be created nor destroyed
rub electrons from a bar with fur
bar becomes positively charge by
the exact amount that fur becomes
negatively charged.
bar becomes a tiny bit less massive
The interaction force between two charges is:
directly proportional to the size of each charge (q1 and q2)
and
inversely proportional to the square of their separation
distance (d)
k= 9.0 x 109 N/m2/C2 Fe>>>Fg
The interaction force between two charges is:
directly proportional to the size of each charge (q1 and q2)
Double either q1 or q2 then F doubles.
Double both then F quadruples
The interaction force between two charges is:
inversely proportional to the square of their separation
distance (d)
Double the separation distance then F is reduced to (1/4)
Halve the separation distance then F is quadrupled (4x)
The interaction force between two charges is:
inversely proportional to the square of their separation
distance (d)
triple the separation distance then F is reduced to (1/9)
(1/3) the speration distance then F is increased 9 fold (9x)
The interaction force between two charges is:
inversely proportional to the square of their separation
distance (d)
If separation distance is increased by 10 then F

Conductors have very loosely bound electrons. That is electrons that are not really attached to one particular nucleus. These electrons are sometimes called free electrons because they move freely when exposed to an electric field
Gold
Copper
Silver
Ionic solutions (salt water)
Insulators have very tightly bound electrons. That is electrons that are firmly attached to one particular nucleus. These electrons are very hard to set in motion throughout the material
Glass
Dry wood
Plastic
Semiconductors have moderately bound electrons. These electrons can be set into motion throughout the material when a moderately strong electric field is established in the material.
Carbon
Silicon
Superconductors have no electrical resistance to charge flow (infinite electrical conductivity)
Very cold silver (269 °C)
