  • Electric Battery Electricity
    425 words
    Count Alessandro Volta (1742-1827) Count Alessandro Volta was born in 1745 at Como, Italy. He was educated in public schools and in 1774, he became professor of Physics at the Royal School in Como. The following year he devised the electrophorus, an instrument that produced charges of static electricity. In 1776-1777 he applied himself to chemistry, studying atmospheric electricity and devising experiments such as the ignition of gases by an electric spark in a closed vessel. In 1779 he became p...
  • Electric Charge On An Object
    640 words
    In some Greek experiments, objects attracted each other after rubbing. Other experiments produced objects that pushed away, or repelled, each other. The evidence showed that electric force made matter either attract or repel other matter. Electric force is caused by electric charge. Electric charge is a property of the bits of matter within atoms. Electric force can cause matter to attract or repel because there are two kinds of charge - positive and negative charge. The effects of electric forc...
  • Amount Of Static Electricity
    477 words
    Every one knows what static electricity is. We have all seen static electricity in the form of lightning or even in the zap when reaching for a door knob. Sliding across the car seat or walking across the carpet can create this charge. The same types of electrical charges can have an effect on the electronic components you handle every day in class. Static electricity is an electrical charge at rest. Static electricity is most commonly created by friction and separation. Friction causes heat whi...
  • Batteries Of Electric Vehicles

    As humans continually exploit the earth for their own conveniences they become increasingly aware of the damage they cause. In the last 30 years the population has begun to notice just how serious the problem is and as a result great efforts have been put into amending the environment from our technological follies. Since the use of fossil fuels causes 70% of the earth's air pollution it's only logical that the human race must restrict the use of oil (Exploring Alternative Fuels) One of the main...
  • Charge Of The Electron
    528 words
    The Discovery Of The Electron The electron was discovered in 1895 by J.J. Thomson in the form of cathode rays, and was the first elementary particle to be identified. The electron is the lightest known particle which possesses an electric charge. Its rest mass is Me approximately equal 9.1 x 10 -28 g, about 1/1836 of the mass of the proton or neutron. The charge of the electron is -e = -4.8 x 10^-10 esu elec trostaticunit). The sign of the electron's charge is negative by convention, and that of...
  • Electrical Charge In The House
    1,985 words
    On November 24th, 1999, the man that lived in the second house on the other side of the river took out his rifle and shot himself. I want to tell you about it; about the things that are going on that could push a man to such an act. I can also tell you about that man's brother, who died in September, 1999, at age fifty-four, from a ruptured blood vessel in the frontal lobe of his brain. And about his twenty-two year old son who died in an unexplained accident two weeks later. And of the grandfat...
  • Magnetic Field The Electric Charges
    789 words
    Electricity Monica Smith Summary of Demonstration: This experiment will show us how energy current moves through circuits. I will be pointing out the different parts and telling what they do, and how they contribute so that the energy flows through them all. Finally, I will close the cardboard piece so that everyone will be able to actually see the result of the electric current. Scientific Explanation: To explain my demonstration and how it works, we will have to start all the way back at elect...
