rkElectricity is a form of energy represented by the movement of electric charge from one position to another.  An electric charge can exert a force on other charged lightning websiteobjects without even touching them, similar to the way a magnet can attract or repel other objects without touching them.  In this unit you will learn many interesting facts about electricity and magnetism.  (Prentice Hall Conceptual Physics-Paul Hewitt)
