P2 Electricity - Currents in Electricity

HideShow resource information


  • The electrical charge (static) stays on the material, it is not discharged
  • Static builds up when electrons are rubbed off on one material to another.
  • The material that recieves the electrons becomes NEGATIVLY charged 
  • The one who gives up electrons becomes POSITIVELY charged

Repulsion and Attraction

  • When two charged materials are brought together they exert force on each other (repulsion)
  • Two materials with the SAME type of charge REPEL
  • Two materials with different types of charge ATTRACT each other

Electrical Circuits

  • Substance that allow electrical current to flow through them easily are called CONDUCTORS
  • The quicker the charge…
