Term
 State the two types of charge
Definition
 positive (+) negative (-)   and thus, neutral (0)
Term
 Law of conservation of charge
Definition
 Charge is always conserved, and never created or destroyed (like energy)
Term
 What is the difference between conductors and insulators?
Definition
 conductors: a material that allows the flow of charge through it In conductors, the flow of charge is always the result of the flow of electrons from atom to atom   insulators: charge cannot flow through a material
Term
 State Coulomb's Law
Definition
 F = k(Q1Q2)/r2   k = 8.99×109Nm2/C2
