Electrostatics and Coulomb's Law Interactive is a 4 page scaffolding worksheet using the interactive from Concord Consortium. Students begin by defining what makes up charges (protons and electrons) and how atoms are affected by these charges. Students then explore the effect of ions and atoms when they are near each other which leads to the introduction of Coulomb's law. Students then evaluate the effect of charged rods near different types of electroscopes and how charges can affect other moving charged particles. Meets *NGSS HS-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.
