Unit 10 L 10.1 Static electricity (9)

```UNIT 10
LESSON 10.1 STATIC ELECTRICITY
Let’s do some magic using the
physics of electricity.
Starter: Observation, Analysis
and conclusion
Q1 ) Draw the structure of an atom (NOT Hydrogen and Helium)
a) Which part of the atom is moving? Does this particle ever
leave the atom, why?
b) What happens to the over all charge of the atom when the
particle leaves?
KEY
WORDS
Electron,
Proton
Neutron
Charges,
Positive,
Negative,
Neutral,
Attraction,
Repulsion
Q2) Watch the following video on an experiment and answer
the following questions: (use the key words)
a) Why was the balloon rubbed with the
straw?
b) Why was the balloon moving away?
Step 1 : Take a plastic ruler, rub against your jacket
– Write down your observation in the shared slides.
Step 2 : Inflate a balloon to an appropriate size.
Rub it against hair of a volunteering partner. Write
down your observation in the shared slides.
Step 3 : Write a concluding statement for your two
observations ( charge goes from where and is
gained where)
HINT :- Use the simulation link in GC to write up the

An electric current is a flow of …………….. carried by
…………….. which move round the circuit from the ……………..
terminal of the battery to the …………….. terminal.
A metal contains …………….. that can move about freely inside
the metal. A metal object can only hold …………….. if it is
insulated from the ground.

Lesson 10.3 : Electrons on the move ( review of concept before term break 10.210.3)
Starter question:
1) Write down three main characteristics of
Static Electricity?
2) Differentiate between static electricity and
the conventional current?
3) Can neutral objects be charged? How and
explain?
LESSON 10.4 CONDUCTORS AND INSULATORS
Understanding the working of a characteristic
difference between a conductor and an insulator.
Learning about circuits and symbols of circuits.
Go to GC and find the link to the simulation lab
Define : Series circuit, parallel circuit
What ammeter does?
What voltmeter does?
How cell makes current flow
Why a lamp will light up?
