Static Electricity

Our Static Electricity unit focuses on the topic of how objects become electrically charge and the effect of such charges on other objects in the surrounding area.  The set of Video Tutorials below represent a systematic approach to understanding charge, charging methods, and the effect charges have on other objects.

We have provided links to all finished videos. Video titles without links are videos that we plan to eventually create. The best way to get the newest content is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
