Transcript of Static Electricity

Static Electricity
"Static Electricty" refers to the fact that an object acquires a charge.

> Positive
> Negative
Atoms are the homes of charges
The more electrons the more negative the charge.

The less electrons the more positive the charge.

Equal electrons and protons make the charges neutral.
>Center(nucleus)- Positively charged Protons
>Outside(orbits)- Negatively charged Electrons
There are two types of charges named by Benjamin Franklin.
Because Protons are at the center of an atom, they are hard to remove.
Electrons on the other hand are on the outside and relatively easy to remove.
Opposite Charges Attract.
Like Charges Repel.
