Balloons and Static Electricity
- Dave Nero
This simulation shows how a balloon and sweater can become statically charged. Drag the balloon over the sweater to charge it.
- Can a balloon be "negatively charged" and still have positive charges on it?
- Why is the charged balloon attracted to the sweater?
- Why is the charged balloon attracted to the neutral wall?
- Why is the charged balloon "more" attracted to the sweater than the wall?
