Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A principle stating that the total electric charge of an isolated system is fixed.
- ‘In this chapter we introduce a model of electric charge flow, the law of conservation of charge, and two methods for measuring charge.’
- ‘The student should be able to describe the method of charging by friction, identify the result of frictional charging, and explain frictional charging in terms of the conservation of charge and the direction of electron flow.’
- ‘However, this violates the law of conservation of charge, and is not physically possible.’
- ‘These observations indicate a strong conservation of charge that will favor the formation of the respective salt bridge in similar structures.’
- ‘In any circuit, the principles of conservation of charge and conservation of energy play a key role and form the basis of our analysis.’
