Static Electricity

• When objects are rubbed together, charge is built up
• Atoms = positive and negative charges. Negative charges= electrons= move
• Two insulating objects rubbed together = electrons come off one object and go on to the other
• Object gains electrons = negatively charged
• Object which loses electrons = equal positive charge
• Rub plastic rod with a cloth = electrons move from cloth to rod.
• Charged objectsdon’t have to be touching to feel a force
• Electric field = space around a charged object where other charge objects feel a force
• OPPOSITE CHARGES ATTACT, SAME CHARGES REPEL EACH OTHER.
