Click on the ELECTRIC FIELDS banner below to watch the YouTube video on Electric Fields. While watching the video, write down the answers to the questions on the right side of the link. The answers to the questions from each of the 3 sections of the unit will account for 70% of your unit grade. When you complete each section, submit your answers via the link below. The link will send you to a Google Forms document where you will input your answers to the section's questions. Unit assessments will be released on Thursdays. After you have submitted your answers for each of the 3 sections AND the unit assessment, you will receive a grade for the unit.
Your answers to the questions below need to be manually submitted via a Google Forms document, using the link (button) on the right.
Any charged object has its own _______________ ______________ all the way around it.
A charge has an electric field just like a mass has an ___________ __________ or a magnet has a magnetic field.
Field lines are basically just like vectors (lines with arrows), extending from the ___________ charge to the ____________ charge.
In Physics, we use field lines to show the attractive force of electricity. Field lines extend at ___________ __________ to the surface, gently curving out of one particle and into the other particle.
The strength of the field is ___________ close to the particle and gets ____________ the further away you get.
Oppositely charged particles will have an _____________ force between them, which we call an “electrostatic force.”
If we had two particles of the same charge, for example, two positive particles or two negative particles, then the two particles would ____________ each other.
A strong field can cause even an electric insulator such as air to _________ electrons and become _______________ ions.
The process of turning a neutral particle into an ion is called ____________. This process is important for understanding how particles with no charge, such as air, can become charged and are able to conduct electricity.
