1. Reading Number 01

PhysicsClassroom Reading and Questions


Balloons & Static Electricity

 http://phet.colorado.edu/new/simulations/sims.php?sim=Balloons_and_Static_Electricity

 

Lab Questions:

Answer questions #1-3 using COMPLETE SENTENCES!!!

 

1.      Play with the simulation and observe what happens when the balloon is rubbed on the sweater.  Explain why this happens.  

2.      The process you completed in #1 is a called Conductioncharging an object by friction.  Bring your charged balloon near the wall and describe what happens to the wall.  Explain why this happens.  

3.      The effect you observed in the wall in #2 is called polarization.  Now, take your charged balloon and place it somewhere between the wall and the sweater.  Observe what happens, and describe it here.  Explain why this happens! 

 

Post-Lab Questions: 

Write the letter of the correct answer on the blank provided.

_____  1.  When charging an object by friction,

a.   only the positive charges move from one object to the other.

b.   only the negative charges move from one object to the other.

c.   both the positive and negative charges move from one object to the other.

d.   neither the positive nor the negative charges move from one object to the other.

 

_____  2.  When an object becomes polarized,

a.   only the positive charges move within the object.

b.   only the negative charges move within the object.

c.   both the positive and negative charges move within the object.

d.   neither the positive nor the negative charges move within the object.

 

_____  3.  Based upon what you saw in this lab, then, it can be said that

a.   positive charges are stationary within objects.

b.   negative charges are stationary within objects.

c.   positive charges are mobile within objects.

d.   negative charges are mobile within objects.

e.   both a and b

f.    both a and d

g.   both b and c

h.   both c and d

 

John Travoltage

http://phet.colorado.edu/new/simulations/sims.php?sim=John_Travoltage

 

Lab Questions:

Answer questions #1-3 using COMPLETE SENTENCES!!!

 

1.      Rub John Travoltage’s foot on the carpet and observe what happens.  What is this called?  ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

Where have you seen this before? 

Explain why this happens.  (Use a COMPLETE SENTENCE!)  

 

2.      Watch after you stopped rubbing John Travoltage’s foot on the carpet, what happened to the charges in his body?  

Were the charges in his body positive or negative? 

Explain why the charges do what they did.  (Use a COMPLETE SENTENCE!) 

 

3.      Now, touch John Travoltage’s hand to the door knob.  Observe what happens.  Explain why this happens. (Use a COMPLETE SENTENCE!) 

 

Post-Lab Questions: 

Write the letter of the correct answer on the blank provided.

_____  1.  Over time, all the negative charges in an object,

a.   remain clustered together where they were placed.

b.   spread out over a small area on the object.

c.   spread out over a large area on the object.

 

_____  2.  When a charged object touches a conductor,

a.   the positive charges move to the conductor and exit the object.

b.   the negative charges move to the conductor and exit the object.

c.   both the positive and negative charges move to the conductor and exit the object.

d.   neither the positive nor the negative charges move to the conductor and exit the object.

 

_____  3.  Based upon what you saw in this lab, then, it can be said that

a.   a person cannot be shocked if they have an excess charge on them.

b.   a person cannot be shocked if they have neutral charge.

c.   a person can be shocked at any time because it doesn’t depend on the charge the person has.

Once you are done with both handouts you are to go to the link below:

Click Continue down at the bottom

Then Practice Mode

Mechanics

Newton's Laws

You will be completing NL1-NL6, this will be individually and taken as a Activities grade. This must also be done in class. 


You will be showing me the analysis page (like the one below) of your activity before moving on to the next one. If you accidentally close it without showing me, you'll have to do it all over again.
