Unit 3. Characteristics of Electricity. Unit 3. Electrical energy has allowed us to develop technologies that have enhanced our way of life. Hybrid. Hybrid vehicles are often used today where, one part of the vehicle uses a gasoline powered motor and also energy from an electrical motor
Characteristics of Electricity
Static Electricity is produced by electron transfer
By the end of the lesson you should be able to:
Proton Neutron Electron
Examples: Lightning, static cling in clothes, receiving a shock when touching a door handle
Since 1 electron = 1 negative charge
1 C = 6.25 x 1018 electrons!!
Examples: glass, plastics, ceramics, dry wood.
