# What Causes Charges To Move In A Circuit?

A voltage difference is the push that causes charges to move.

## What type of force is an electric force?

Electric Force. Electric force is the attractive force between the electrons and the nucleus. Now, a positive charge or a negative charge creates a field in the empty space around it, and we call that empty space an electric field.

## What are the two type of electric force?

Electrical force consists of two different types of charges. They are positive electric charge and negative electric charge. The interaction of both of these charges is easily predictable.

## Is electric force a field force?

Electric field ---------------- In SI base units.

## What are the types of electric force?

Electric Forces and Their Types: There are predominantly two types of electrical forces: Attractive electrical forces and repulsive electrical forces. Unlike charges exert an attractive force on one another and like charges repel each other.

## What are the two things that make an electric force stronger?

The strength of electric force depends on the amount of electric charge on the particles and the distance between them. Larger charges or shorter distances result in greater force.

## What moves the charges in a circuit?

Electric current results from the movement of electric charge (electrons) around a circuit, but to move charge from one node to another there needs to be a force to create the work to move the charge, and there is: voltage.

## What 2 things affect electrical force?

Two factors influence electric force between objects. The first attribute to this influence is how far the particles are from each other. Secondly, electric force is influenced by the quantity of electric charge that these particles contain.

## What force causes electric charges to move?

the electromagnetic force.

## Is electric force a type of contact force?

Electrostatic forces are non-contact forces; they pull or push on objects without touching them.

## What is the name of electric force?

electrostatic force.
