Electrostatics is a branch of physics that studies electric charges at rest. This 46 slide powerpoint covers almost every aspect of Electrostatics for your general Physics or AP Physics classes. This powerpoint has images, definitions, gifs, worked out example problems and video links to help aid your students' in the understanding of this topic. This topic is the foundation for Electricity & Magnetism, Advanced Electronics, and is found on the Advanced Placement (AP) Physics test at the end of the year.

Topics:

• The Atom
• Atomic Models
• Atomic Structure
• Valence Electrons
• Electric Charge in the Atom
• Electric Charge and its conservation
• Grounding
• Coulomb's Law
• Electric Fields
• Electrical Potential Difference
• Batteries: How they work.

NGSSHS-PS2-4
Use mathematical representations of Newton’s Law of Gravitation and Coulomb’s Law to describe and predict the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects. Emphasis is on both quantitative and conceptual descriptions of gravitational and electric fields. Assessment is limited to systems with two objects.
NGSSHS-PS3-1
Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known. Emphasis is on explaining the meaning of mathematical expressions used in the model. Assessment is limited to basic algebraic expressions or computations; to systems of two or three components; and to thermal energy, kinetic energy, and/or the energies in gravitational, magnetic, or electric fields.
NGSSHS-PS3-2
Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects). Examples of phenomena at the macroscopic scale could include the conversion of kinetic energy to thermal energy, the energy stored due to position of an object above the earth, and the energy stored between two electrically-charged plates. Examples of models could include diagrams, drawings, descriptions, and computer simulations.
NGSSHS-PS2-5
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current. Assessment is limited to designing and conducting investigations with provided materials and tools.
