ELECTROSTATICS Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

protons and neutrons nucleus
charges that don't move easily through material since their electrons are tightly bound to the nucleus. insulators
A force that opposes motion between two surfaces that are in contact friction
the fundamental law of electrostatics stating that the force between two particles is directly proportional to the product of their charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them Coloumbs law
