Unit 4: Electricity
Chapter 6 & 7
CA- California K-12 Academic Content Standards
Concept 5: Electric and magnetic phenomena are related and have many practical applications. As a basis for understanding this concept:
Standard d: Students know the properties of transistors and the role of transistors in electric circuits.
Standard e: Students know charged particles are sources of electric fields and are subject to the forces of the electric fields from other charges.
Standard h: Students know changing magnetic fields produce electric fields, thereby inducing currents in nearby conductors.
Standard i: Students know plasmas, the fourth state of matter, contain ions or free electrons or both and conduct electricity.
