1. 1. Electric Charges& CircuitsSome rights reserved by reutC
2. 2. Remember:Electric charges come intwo varieties. Negative & Positive
3. 3. Opposite charges attract.
4. 4. Like charges repel.
5. 5. Like charges repel.
6. 6. How do we describeelectricity?Voltage The difference in electric potential between 2 points. or How much the electric charges want to move.
7. 7. Some  rights  reserved  by  Elfo  Tógrafo  High Voltage
