In an electrically neutral atom the number of protons in the nucleus is equal to the number of
electrons that surround the nucleus.
Electric potential, measured in volts, is the ratio of electric energy to amount of electric
When the distance between two charges is halved, the electrical force between the charges
The direction of an electric field is the direction of the force that the field would exert on
If you use 10 J of work to push a coulomb of charge into an electric field, its voltage with respect to its starting position is
An electroscope is charged positively as shown by foil leaves that stand apart. As a negative charge is brought close to the electroscope, the leaves
fall closer together
Two charged particles attract each other with a force F. If the charges of both particles are doubled, and the distance between them also doubled, then the force of attraction will be
Two charged particles held close to each other are released. As they move, the force on each particle increases. Therefore, the particles must have
When a 10-V battery is connected to a resistor, the current in the resistor is 2 A. What is the resistor's value?
When two lamps are connected in parallel to a battery, the electrical resistance that the battery senses is
less than the resistance of either lamp.

An electric heater is rated at 300 W when used in a 110-V circuit. The safety fuse in the circuit can handle 15 A of current. How many heaters can be safely operated in the circuit?
The force on an electron moving in a magnetic field will be the largest when its direction is
perpendicular to the magnetic field direction.
The magnetic field strength inside a current-carrying coil will be greater if the coil encloses a
rod of iron.
A certain transformer doubles input voltage. If the primary coil has 10 A of current, then the current in the secondary coil is
Neon signs require about 12,000 volts to operate. If the circuit uses a 120-volt power source, the ratio of primary to secondary turns on the transformer should be
