Flashcards in Electric Energy - Different Types Of Electric Energy - Static Electricity Deck (10):
Give a short description of what static electricity is (2)
When certain materials are rubbed together, electric charges often produce on the surface. Then, they attract each other or spark to jump from one to another...
What does it mean if a object is neutral? (1)
The object has equal protons and electrons.
What happens when 2 neutral objects are rubbed together? (2)
The electrons transfers from one object to the other and the opposite charged objects attract each other .
When is the object negatively charged? (1)
If it has more electrons than protons
When is an object positively charged? (1)
When it has more protons than electrons
Name one form of static electricity in nature (1)
When we rub a balloon against our hair, which one looses electrons? (1)
True or false:
When we rub a balloon on our hair, al hairs stand up together
Explain electric discharge (3)
There is often a spark between two objects. This went two objects neutralise their charges again. When electrons suddenly flow across an empty space with no conduction matter, it sparks.
