100

An imbalance of positive (+) or negative (-) charges between objects?
What is static electricity?

100

A material that limits electric flow which means it does not conduct electricity well
What is an insulator?

100

we use this daily to work and to play because it can travel from one place to another
What is current electricity?

100

This does not allow electric current to flow through it easily
What is the resistor?

100

Rubber is an example of this
What is an insulator?

500

This is an imbalance of positive (+) and negative (-) charges between objects
What is static electricity?

500

This occurs when the wires provide a path through which the charges flow
