These two chapters are essential reading for anyone lacking a formal background in electrical science. The first of the two chapters begins by explaining the nature of electric charge and how it is quantified, then describes the ways that it can be concentrated and stored in capacitors. The chapter also introduces the important concept of the electric dipole that exists where two charges of equal magnitude but opposite polarity are placed in close proximity to one another.
