Mission SE4: Charging by Contact and Grounding


Mission SE4 pertains to the process of charging by contact (i.e., conduction) and the process of grounding. Students will need to be able to predict which direction electrons will flow during each process. The mission consists of 34 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to describe the method of contact charging, identify the result of contact charging, and explain contact charging in terms of the conservation of charge and the direction of electron flow.
  • The student should be able to describe the grounding process and explain grounding in terms of the direction of electron flow.
