§11.1 - Static Electricity
Science - TTO2

Slide 1 - Tekstslide

Type here what you remember about electricity.
Just use keywords.
Multiple entries possible.

Slide 2 - Woordweb

Learning Goals
  • Describe simple experiments to show how to produce and    detect electric charge. 
  • State that there are positive and negative charges. 
  • State that unlike charges attract each other and like charges repel each other. 
  • State that charge is measured Coulombs

Slide 3 - Tekstslide

Do you know John Travolta?!
You might know him from this song...

You don't have to watch the full clip ;-)

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

Well... it's time to meet his cousin: 

Click the link on the next slide.
Try to move John's leg/arm around and see what happens!
If you have seen enough, continue with the next slide.


Slide 5 - Tekstslide

Slide 6 - Link

Did you see what happened?
Yes, John got zapped by the doorknob!
But how is this possible?

Read p. 154 and 155 in your book.

Try to explain why John got zapped in your own words. 
Use the question box on the next slide to fill in your answer.

Need help?
Do you need help studying the text of unit 11.1, watch this video.

Slide 7 - Tekstslide

Explain in you own words why John got zapped by the doorknob.

Slide 8 - Open vraag

Time for a video!
Watch the video on the next slide to get an even better explanation! 

Slide 9 - Tekstslide

Slide 10 - Video

All matter is made out of atoms
Watch the video on the next slide to learn more about atoms!

Slide 11 - Tekstslide

Slide 12 - Video

Inside an atom:

Protons (postively charged)
Neutrons (neutrally charged)
Electrons (negatively charged)

Slide 13 - Tekstslide

Inside an atom:
  •  An uncharged atom has an equal amount of protons and electrons. 
  • Electrons move about in the space around the nucleus. Therefore, they can easily jump from one atom to another one.
  • Protons can't move, since they can't leave the nucleus.
  • If an atom receives or gives away electrons, the atom becomes charged.

Slide 14 - Tekstslide

  • Charge is measured in Coulombs. 
  • Atoms/objects that receive electrons, become negatively charged.
  • Atoms/objects that give away electrons become positively charged. 
  • Whether an object becomes postively or negatively charged depends on the two materials that rub together. 

Slide 15 - Tekstslide


Like charges repel each other

Unlike charges attract each other

Slide 16 - Tekstslide

Explore the pHet simulation on the next slide.

Use the theory on the previous (yellow) slides to explain what happens to the balloons. 

Slide 17 - Tekstslide

Slide 18 - Link

Time for some practice:
Do Summary Questions p. 155 (Textbook)

Do Workbook Exercises p. 79 (Workbook)

Slide 19 - Tekstslide

How do we call the particles that move around the nucleus of the atom?

Slide 20 - Quizvraag

What is the unit of Charge?

Slide 21 - Quizvraag

Which drawing is FALSE?
