Lesson 2: Methods of Charging
There is a growing number of GIF animations with accompanying discussions at the Multimedia Physics Studios; these will provide helpful review of the difficult topics of charging by induction, grounding, and charging by contact. The animations are accompanied by thorough explanations of the charging process. The presence and location of excess charge and the direction of electron flow are shown on the objects of the animation. Now that's something you're not going to see during your lab. Currently, there are animations for the following topics:
