• 1.

### Which of the following is NOT an example of static electricity?

• A.

Lightning

• B.

Balloon sticking to a wall

• C.

Electric shock

• D.

Electromagnet

D. Electromagnet
Explanation
Electromagnetism is not directly related to static electricity.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### What happens when two objects with different charges are brought close together?

• A.

They repel each other.

• B.

They attract each other.

• C.

Nothing happens

• D.

It depends on the charges.

B. They attract each other.
Explanation
If a positive charge and a negative charge interact, their forces act in the same direction, from the positive to the negative charge. As a result opposite charges attract each other:

Rate this question:

• 3.

### What is the SI unit of electric charge?

• A.

Coulomb

• B.

Ampere

• C.

Ohm

• D.

Volt

A. Coulomb
Explanation
Coulomb is the SI unit of charge because one coulomb is that charge whose flow in one second results in one ampere current.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Which of the following materials is an insulator?

• A.

Copper

• B.

Aluminum

• C.

Silver

• D.

Rubber

D. Rubber
Explanation
Rubber is an insulator as it does not allow electric charge to flow easily.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### What causes an object to become positively charged?

• A.

Gain of electrons

• B.

Loss of electrons

• C.

Gain of protons

• D.

Loss of protons

C. Gain of protons
Explanation
When an object gains protons, its positive charge increases.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What is the process of transferring charge from one object to another by direct contact called?

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Induction

• C.

Repulsion

• D.

Induction

A. Conduction
Explanation
Conduction occurs when there is direct contact between materials that differ in their ability to give up or accept electrons.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Which of the following statements about electric fields is correct?

• A.

Electric fields are only produced by charged objects

• B.

Electric fields can exist even in the absence of charges

• C.

Electric fields are limited to metallic objects

• D.

Electric fields are visible to the naked eye

B. Electric fields can exist even in the absence of charges
Explanation
Electric fields are areas around a charge so yes there can be an electric field at a point where there is no charge.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What happens to the electric field strength between two charged objects as the distance between them increases?

• A.

It increases.

• B.

It remains constant.

• C.

It becomes zero.

• D.

It decreases.

D. It decreases.
Explanation
The electric field strength decreases as the distance between charged objects increases.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### What is the process of charging an object without direct contact called?

• A.

Induction

• B.

Conduction

• C.

Repulsion

• D.

Electrification

A. Induction
Explanation
The charging by induction process is where the charged particle is held near an uncharged conductive material that is grounded on a neutrally charged material.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Which of the following factors affect the strength of the electric force between two charged objects?

• A.

Mass and speed

• B.

Charge and distance

• C.

Density and volume

• D.

Temperature and pressure

B. Charge and distance
Explanation
The electric force between two charged objects depends on the magnitude of the charges and the distance between them.
