# Lesson 19.1 - Electric Charge Cheat Sheet (DRAFT) by mohadsam96

Summarization of Lesson 19.1

This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.

### Types of Charging

 Charging by Friction Charging by Conduction Charging by Induction Charging by Polari­zation

### Charging by Friction

the transfer of electrons from one uncharged object to another by rubbing the two objects together. (Like hair and balloon)

### Charging by Conduction

the transfer of electrons from one object to another by direct contact. (Like when you rub your feet on the carpet, but the charges move to your hands)

### Charging by Induction

the transfer of electrons from charged object without touching the object itself (indirect). (Like When a computer monitor or television screen is turned on it begins to build up a charge)

### Charging by Polari­zation

All the atoms or molecules near the neutral material become electr­ically polarized by rearra­nging when a charged object is brought close. (Like a charged balloon when it is stuck to the wall)

### Conser­vation of Charge

which means charge can neither be created nor be destroyed but can be transf­erred from one body to another

### Quanti­zation of Charge

which means that charge is a quantized quantity and is expressed as integral multiples of the basic unit of charge

which means that if there are n number of charges present inside, The total charge present will be the algebraic sum of the individual charges
