Physics - The study of matter and how it affects other matter



In this unit we start with the effects of "static" (that is "not moving") electricity.  We will look at the causes and the forces produced by static electricity.  Since in "real life" static electricity rarely acts only at a point we will also begin to consider "Force Fields" in this case the electric field.  A force field is an "invisible something" that causes changes in motion (produces forces on other objects).  We will begin with Coloumb's Law and later see how it is very similar to Newton's Law of Gravity and the law for magnetism.  Since static electricity can cause changes in motion we will also consider the these effects on a subatomic as well as large scale (work, electric potential difference, charge storage and capacitance).
