  • Static Electricity
    • Atoms
      • Protons
        • mass : 1
        • Charge : +1
      • Neutron
        • mass : 1
        • charge : 0
      • Electrons
        • mass : 1/2000
        • charge : -1
    • Build up of static
      • Caused by FRICTION
      • two insulating materials cause electrons to be scraped off and put on the other
      • Put and negative charge on one object and negative on another
      • Only electrons can move!
      • It depends on the objects
        • Put and negative charge on one object and negative on another
    • LIKE charges REPEL, UNLIKE charges ATTRACT
    • Static electricity  can cause little sparks or shocks!
      • Clothing Crackles
      • Car shocks
      • Shocks from door handles
    • Some electrically charged objects attract other objects
      • Balloons stick to walls
      • A charged can pick up small pieces of paper
      • Lighting
    • Electrostatic charges
      • Electrostatic sprayers
        • The bike is positive and the spray is negative
      • Fuel tanks
        • negative pump and positive tak causes sparks, with fuel it can be dangerous
      • Things like fuel tanks can be earthed to stopped sparks!
