Lecture 1 Outline of Current Lecture I. Fundamental Charge (e) a. e = 1.6 x 10^-19 b. electron charge = -e c. proton charge = +e II. Total Charge (q) a. q = Ne i. N = number of particles (integer) III. Charge Transfer: 3 types a. By friction b. By conduction (contact = direct flow of electrons) - uncharged object ends up with same charge as charged object c. By inductions (no contact, just polarization) - uncharged object ends up with opposite charge of charged object Physics 012 1st Edition
