In Class Assignment for Fri 4/8: - Sorry for being out again today :-(
1) CH-22 = Take notes on Power point on electrostatics Chapter 22-Electrostatics(2003).ppt
2) CH-23 = Take notes on Power point on electric current Chapter 23-Electric Current(2003).ppt

Please note, that I have not formated these powerpoints with the "yellow boxes" to indicate what is most important. Please do your best to ascertain what you would need to write down in your notes. We will be doing several problems regarding Ohm's Law and solving Circuits (parallel & series). Focus on:
-WHAT IS ELECTRICITY?
-WHAT CAUSES ELECTRICITY TO FLOW?
-DIFFERENT TYPES OF ELECTRICAL CURRENT/CIRCUITS
-RULES OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CIRCUITS (PARALLEL VS. SERIES)
-(these kind of large picture type of items)
