ELECTRICITY & MAGNETISM




GA STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE
S8P5. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major forces acting in nature.
a. Construct an argument using evidence to support the claim that fields (i.e., magnetic fields, gravitational fields, and electric fields) exist between objects exerting forces on each other even when the objects are not in contact.
b. Plan and carry out investigations to demonstrate the distribution of charge in conductors and insulators.
c. Plan and carry out investigations to identify the factors (e.g., distance between objects, magnetic force produced by an electromagnet with varying number of wire turns, varying number or size of dry cells, and varying size of iron core) that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
