Electric Force and Charge

This video is a quick introduction to the components of the atom that provide for electricity. Duration: 0:51.

Conservation of Charge

Charge is carried by the proton and electron subatomic particles, which are always equal in number. Thus, the total net charge always remains the same. Duration: 3:36.


The build up of electric charge can occur by sliding physical contact or by induction. Duration: 3:14.
