Electrostatics- Quizzes

Posted on

  • Charge? The electrical quality (attraction or repulsion- push away) between electrons(-) & protons(+).
  • Conservation of charge? Electrons cannot be created or destroyed- just transferred from 1 material to another
  • Coulomb= one Coulomb = the charge of 6.24 X 10 18 electrons. Or = 6.24 000,000,000,000,000,000
  • Coulomb’s Law? Describes the interaction between electrically charged particles. Electrical Forces between 2 charges depends on: 1 SIZE of each charge (more charge = more force); 2. DISTANCE between charges ( more distance = less force). COULOMB’S LAW: Electrical Forces are DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL (a ratio like 1:2 or 5:10) to each charge & INVERSLEY PROPORTIONAL (opposite of a ratio) to the SQUARE of the distance (d2).
  • Coulomb’s Law? Electrostatic force is directly proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them
  • Electric conductor? A material in which charges can move freely
  • Electrical forces? Come from the particles in atoms
  • Electrical insulator? A material in which charges cannot move freely
  • Electrically polarized? When one side of the atom or molecule is induced to be slightly more positive or negative than the opposite side.
  • Electrostatics? Electrical charges, forces between them, and how they behave in different materials.
  • Grounded? When a conductor is connect to Earth by means of a conducting wire or copper pipe
  • Induction? The process of charging a conductor by bringing it near another charged object and grounding the conductor
  • Polarization? The result of a more positive charge on one side of a molecule that on the other in the presence of a charged object
  • Semiconductors? Third class of materials characterized by electrical properties that are somewhere between those of insulators and conductors
  • Superconductors? Conductors that have zero electrical resistance when they are at or below a certain temperature
  • What is a conductor? Are substances in which electrons can move from atom to atom freely.
  • What is a insulator? If a insulator becomes charged it stays charged until it is removed by grounding or the moisture in the air
  • What is another name for electric potential? Electromotive force (EMF) or voltage
  • What is charging by contact? One charged object makes contacts with a neutral object electrons are transferred resulting in the charged objects each in the same charge
  • What is charging by friction? Two neutral objects are rubbed together rapidly. Electrons are transferred so that the object gains electrons and one loss electrons
  • What is charging by induction? The charged object is brought near a neutral object. The neutral object is grounded. When the ground and charged object are removed the neutral object resulting in a opposite charge to the charging object.
  • What is the formula for Coulomb’s Law? Force= k (Q1 QB2/d2
  • What Voltage do x-ray units operate? 220 V or higher
  • When an object becomes electrified, the electric charges are distributed throughout the object, this is called? Electric charge distribution
  • When electric charges are concentrated along the sharpest curvature of the surface, this is called? Electric charge concentration

    many thanks, it’s simply accessible and has countless pleasant ideas and tips. the primary of my 2 favorite options are the pages where they’ll begin with an item or a handful of things that function inspiration for your space, after which detail how the house owner used those things to form a novel and well-styled house.Online affiliates are alternative website sites that refer their own customers to a different business’s web page…examine a lot of at howtomakemoneywithaffiliate.blogspot.com

    What you said made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I dont want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something to maybe get peoples attention? Just like a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what youve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog come to life a little bit.

    Report: Cancer rates, growth in emerging markets to drive rad therapy equipment sales
    Total global revenue for the radiation therapy device market is expected to reach $3.6 billion by 2018, according to a report by GlobalData, a business intelligence and consulting firm.

    Driven by increases in cancer rates and demand from emerging markets, the report estimates the radiation therapy device market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.1 percent.

    Growth in developed countries will largely be sales to replace existing systems, while countries such as China and India currently have a low penetration of radiation therapy equipment. As purchasing power increases in these emerging economies, radiation therapy device sales are expected to grow, though the high equipment costs could limit accessibility in rural areas, according to the report’s executive summary.

    The report also sized up vendors in the market, tabbing Varian Medical Systems as the market leader for external beam radiation therapy systems with a 49 percent market share. Elekta came in second with a 30 percent share, followed by Accuray/Tomotherapy and Siemens Healthcare.
