To pull closer
The process through which a neutral object becomes electrically charged by coming into contact with a charged object.
A material through which electrically charged particles flow easily.
A property of matter, described as either positive or negative, derived from its positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons.
A continuous flow of electrically charged particles.
a region around an electrically charged object in which the objects exerts electric force.
The push or pull between objects that have electric charge.
A machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
The energy of moving electrons.
A temporary magnet that consists of a current-carrying wire coil surrounding a core made of a magnetic material, such as iron.
A region of influence around an object, space within which a certain affect exists.
A contact force that acts between two objects or surfaces that touch each other.
A machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.
A force that pulls all objects with mass toward one another.
A space within which an object's gravity is exerted.
The process in which an electric field causes parts of an object to become charged with static electricity. Moving electric charges without touching.
A material through which electrically charged particles do not move easily.
Any material that attracts iron, or materials containing iron, nickel or cobalt.
The region around a magnet in which it exerts magnetic force.
a push or pull exerted by a magnet.
One of two ends of a magnet, where the magnetic force of the magnet is strongest.
to push away
The sudden flow of electrons between charged object.
The build up of electric charge on an object.
Uses an electromagnet to convert electrical energy to mechanical.
