### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

Which of the following statements is NOT part of the Law of Electric Charges?

Objects with opposite charges are attracted to each other

More than two objects can have charges that attract

Objects with like charges repel each other

None of the above

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

In order that the atom has a neutral charge, what is the proper configuration of the sub-atomic particles of the atom?

Number of neutrons = Number of electrons

Number of neutrons = Number of protons

Number of protons = Number of electrons

Number of protons + Number of neutrons = Number of electrons

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

What is “Charging of an object by contact with a CHARGED object?”

Charging by Conduction

Charging by Friction

Charging by Grounding

Charging by Induction

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

Copper is a good conductor. A conductor is a material that allows electrons to move through it easily.

True

False

Maybe

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

Which subatomic particles of an atom move most easily from one material to another?

Electrons

Neutrons

Protons

None – No subatomic particles move

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

When Charging by Induction, the charged object must be touching the neutral object?

True

False

Some of the time

Only if you want the charge to be temporary

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

In the triboelectric series, wool has a greater potential to give electrons than copper. If wool and copper are rubbed together, what charge will occur by friction on the wool?

A negative charge

A neutral charge (i.e., electrons will balance out)

A positive charge

None of the above

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

What is “…removing an excess charge by transferring electrons between an object and a large neutral object?”

Electric current

Electric charge

Grounding

Insulating

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

What is an electric charge?

A form of charge, either positive or negative, that exerts an electric force

An imbalance of electric charge on the surface of an object

An object that has equal number of protons and electrons

A shift in the position of the electrons in a neutral object that occurs when a charged object is brought near it

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

A negatively-charged balloon is brought near a neutral conducting sphere as shown below. As it approaches, charge within the sphere will distribute itself in a very specific manner. Which one of the diagrams below properly depicts the distribution of charge in the sphere?

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

You want to PERMANENTLY charge the hanging ball in the picture. If you are charging by Induction, how do you ensure the ball will retain a charge permanently?

Keep the rod touching the ball permanently

Add a positive charge to the rod so both objects become neutral

Ground the ball so the electrons in the ball are pulled away leaving a positive charge

Hope and pray it happens

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

A conducting sphere is charged positively by some method. The charge is initially deposited on the left side of the sphere. Since the object is conductive, the charge spreads uniformly throughout the surface of the sphere. What explains the uniform distribution of the charge?

The charged atoms at the location of charge move throughout the surface of the sphere

The excess protons move from the location of charge to the rest of the sphere

Excess electrons from the rest of the sphere are attracted towards the excess protons

Okay, this just became impossible

None of the above

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

The transfer of electrons between two neutral objects (…made of different materials…) that occurs when they are needed rubbed together or come in conduct (touch)?

Charging by friction

Charging by induction

Charging by electric discharge

Charging by creating a h#@* of a mess

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

What is static electricity?

Imbalance of electric charge on the surface of an object

An object that has electrons

A form of charge exerting a force

A force of repulsion or attraction

### Grade 9 Academic Science – Electricity Quiz #1

Two neutral conducting pop cans are touching each other. A negatively-charged balloon is brought near Can X. As the balloon approaches Can X, there is a movement of electrons between the balloon and Can X (in one direction or the other). In which direction do the electrons in Can X move?

Toward the balloon

Into Can Y

The movement is actually electrons from Can Y to Can X

Into the balloon
