Does Electricity REALLY Flow? (Electrodynamics)

When charge moves, we call it electric current, but the word current is usually reserved for things like water flows. Does electric current really work like that? Electrons are quantum particles, so we have to be careful.

Five-Minute Safety Inspection – submitted by Flinn Scientific Canada

Our “Five-Minute Safety Equipment Inspection” can be used to quickly and easily evaluate the readiness of laboratory safety equipment. According to the OSHA Laboratory Standard, safety equipment should be checked on a regular basis. It is a good policy to document all safety inspections. If problems are found, repairs should be made promptly.

Inertia P.E.O.E. Demonstrations – submitted by Michael Balzer

The link below takes you to two very useful demonstrations to illustrate Inertial which follow the Predict, Explain, Observe, Explain (PEOE) format.

It is suggested that both demos are performed before introducing Newton’s First Law of motion.
