Static Electricity

Static Electricity

Static electricity is the build-up of electrons. Electrons are the tiny part of a particle that makes electricity work. The word static just means that they are not moving. That means that static electricity is just electricity that is not moving.

Electrons are said to have a negative charge and there opposite counterpart, protons, have a positive charge. Just like magnets, opposites attract and similar charges repel. This is why after this experiment your hair may look a little goofy. By rubbing the balloon on your head, all the electrons are moving to the same place which means that all of your hair fibers have the same charge. Your hair is repelling all the rest of your hair!
