Electrostatic Force
back
The attractive or repulsive force on particles or objects due to their electric charges. Measured in Newtons (N) and calculated using Coulomb's Law.
front
Voltage
back
The electric potential difference between two points. Measured in Volts (V), which is equal to Potential Energy per unit Charge (J/C).
front
Electric Field
back
Generated by any stationary or source charge and defined as the electric force per unit charge. Measured in Newtons per Coulomb (N/C).
front
Electric Potential
back
The work done in moving a positive charge from infinity to a point in an electric field. Measured in Joules (J).
front
Magnetic Field
back
A field produced by moving electric charges or currents. Measured in Tesla (T) or Gauss (G).
front
Capacitance
back
The ability of an object to store an electric charge. Measured as the ratio of an object's charge (C) to its potential (V). Its units are Coulombs/Volts (C/V) or Farads (F).
front
Resistance
back
The degree to which a substance opposes the passage of an electric current. Defined as the ratio of voltage across an object to the current running through it. Measured in ohms (Ω).
front
Current
back
The flow of electrons in a wire resulting from a potential difference along that wire. Measured in the amount of charge (C) that passes per unit time (s). Its units are Amperes (A).
front
Electric Power
back
The rate at which electric energy is transferred by an electric circuit. Measured in energy per unit time or Watts (W).
