1 January 11, 2005 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 2 1 hys c f ci i P i s or S ent sts & Engineers 2 Spring Semester 2005 Lecture 2 January 11, 2005 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 2 2 Electric Charge ? When we walk on a carpet on a dry winter's day and then touch a door knob, we often experience a spark . This process is called charging . In this case charg ng consists of mov ng negatively charged electrons from the atoms and molecules of the carpet to the soles of our shoes . The built-up charge discharged through the metal of the door knob producing a spark ? Similar phenomena involving moving air masses produces lightning January 11, 2005 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 2 3 Charge (2) ? Normally objects around us do not seem to be charged ? They have equal amounts of positive and negative charge and are thus electrically neutral ? Demo: . If we rub a glass rod with a cloth, the rod will become charged . If we bring two charged glass rods together they will repel each othe...
