What constitutes battery in California?

Many people tend to use the terms "assault" and "battery" interchangeably because they so often go together. However, assault encompasses actions that merely threatened another individual while California law defines battery as the unlawful and willful use of violence against another person. Battery requires the perpetrator to make actual physical contact with another.
