Coulomb's Law Teacher Resources
Find Coulomb's Law educational ideas and activities
Students use their TI-nspire calculator to solve problems using Coulomb's law. In this calculus lesson, students follow the teacher demonstration in which a charged particle is moved on the calculator to illustrate the way force changes with distance. Students apply Coulomb's law to a problem solving activity.
What a shock your physics pupils will receive when they view this fascinating PowerPoint! They will be able to calculate electric field strength using Coulomb's law as a result. They will also visualize electric fields and grasp the behavior of electrons within a conductor. They examine Faraday's experiments with electricity. This marvelous resource thoroughly prepares learners of physics for dealing with electrostatic equilibrium. Follow the show with some problem-solving practice.
Charge up your physics class with this presentation on electrostatics. They will be able to explain what electrostatics is, how electric charge is conserved, and the basics of electric force. They will see how to use Coulomb's law to compute the electric force between to charges. This straightforward set of slides will provide strong support for your lesson on electrostatics.
Engage your aspiring physicists in a series of lab activities directied at demonstrating the behavior of electric force. In completing these exercises, learners will explore Coulomb's and Gauss's Laws. Well-written directions to four different activites are laid out as well as four ideas for assessments. Thank the National Science Teachers' Association for compiling this collection of resources!
Hopefully you have a sensor interface for your physics class to use with graphing calculators when collecting data with a light sensor. If so, read on. Use this resource for learners to predict and then test whether or not the intensity of light is directly related to the distance from the point light source. After the investigation, they associate findings to the forces of gravity and electricity. This is an outstanding activity for introducing the inverse square law.
In this circuits an Ohm's Law activity, high schoolers read about the differences between series and parallel circuits. They are given Ohm's Law and the definitions of current, voltage and resistance. Students match variables with their quantities, they label circuits, they identify types of circuits, they use Ohm's Law to solve for current and voltage and they experiment in the lab with 4 circuits.
This is an online exercise in which chemistry learners answer a series of multiple choice questions about bonding. Topics addressed include ionic and covalent bonds, electronegativity, ions, valence electrons, resonance structure, and the octet rule. When learners submit, the correct answers get highlighted in green, and if they made errors, they are highlighted in red. This is a terrific way to study for an exam.
Sixty multiple-choice questions test on a variety of first year chemistry subjects. In order to succeed, exam takers must be competent with properties of elements, stoichiometry problems, gas laws, bond dissociation, and types of reactions. A page is provided that displays a comprehensive chart of abbreviations and symbols, constants, and the periodic table. Also, an answer key is provided for teachers. This is a top-notch exam!
Support your electrochemistry lesson with this polished presentation! Chemistry apprentices are introduced to redox reactions, oxidation numbers, and balancing equations. They view photos and diagrams that will solidify their understanding of voltaic cells, electromagnetic force, and batteries. There is enough detailed material here to support several lectures on topic.
Teach your chemistry charges how to calculate amounts of metals produced during an electroplating process. This invaluable handout details the electroplating process and then provides three examples that you can work through with your class. Use it when you introduce the concepts of electroplating for the first time.
Sal does a phenomenal job introducing students to the atom, and the history that goes along with how we understand and view atoms today. Students are introduced to the atomic number, and how elements are organized into the periodic table of elements. Additionally, Sal shows students how elements are constructed and goes further into the periodic table to help students understand what all of the numbers associated with each element stand for.
The topics covered in these multiple choice questions are about atomic structure and bonding, state configurations, pressure and solution concentration, and energy graphs. This is a midterm review which could be used with the whole class, during group work, or for independent study.
