What are disadvantages of static electricity?
Static electricity can also cause uncomfortable shocks to a person who becomes "charged up". To experience this shock, drag your feet across a carpet in socks, then touch your finger to a doorknob. Static electricity can be responsible for the ignition of flammable gases, such as the vapors produced by petrol (gasoline) when you are filling your car.

Static electricity is the BUILT UP STORE of electron charges [e-] between a pair of objects, while current electricity is the FLOW of electrons between these objects. … Static electricity is a transfer of charge from one static body to another, resulting in an imbalance in positive and negative charges, while electric current is the flow of electrons, from one static body to another.
A lack of flexibility and limited menu information is another disadvantage that may have surprising implications.
How does static electricity work? What is static electricity? 1. Static electricity is a form of electricity that does not flow: it is electricity at rest. Objects carry p…ositive electric charges when some of their atoms have fewer electrons than they should, and they carry negative electric charges when some of the atoms have more electrons than they should. An easy way to produce static electricity is to rub two objects (made of certain materials) together: this transfers electrons from one item to another, giving each a positive or negative charge. Positively and negatively charged objects are attracted to each other like magnets-because each wants to shed or acquire electrons. When static electricity becomes powerful enough, so many electrons jump from one thing to another that they cause a visible electric spark, which you will feel as a little "shock" if one of the things the electrons jump to you! (Loose electrons can attach to atoms in the surface of your skin.) Lightning, in fact, is really just a giant spark that results when static electricity builds up in a cloud during a thunderstorm. How does my hair stick up? 2. As you remove your hat, electrons are transferred from hat to hair, creating that interesting hairdo! Remember, objects with the same charge repel each other. Because they have the same charge, your hair will stand on end. Your hairs are simply trying to get as far away from each other as possible! How does a balloon stick to the wall? 3. When you rub a balloon against your clothes and it sticks to the wall, you are adding an extra of electrons (negative charges) to the surface of the balloon. The wall is now more positively charged than the balloon. As the two come in contact, the balloon will stick because of the rule that opposites attract (positive to negative). What is the difference between static and current electricity? 4. According to traditional terminology, current electricity runs freely while electrical charges from static electricity generally do not move too well on their own. Current electricity or "charge flow," forces charged particles to flow through each other. In static electricity, also called "net charge," protons and electrons repel or attract each other. They cannot flow through the other, as is the case with electrical current.
Electricity which are generated due to unbalance in charges in a matter . Charges so created are static and they will not move . Although they are static they will exert f…orce on other charges. Electricity which are generated due to this static charges is known as Static electricity and branch of physics which deals with it is known as Electrostatics. Lightning is an example of Static electricity in nature . Xerox machine works on the principle of Electrostatic principles.
Everything we see is made up of tiny little parts called atoms. The atoms are made of even smaller parts. These are called protons, electrons and neutrons. They are very diffe…rent from each other in many ways. One way they are different is their "charge." Protons have a positive (+) charge. Electrons have a negative (-) charge. Neutrons have no charge.
Yes it is.
If you have more than 50 pc's in your network then static addressing is little bit difficult than dynamic addressing. For Static Addressing you should want to maintain d…ocument like which user having which ip address and what are the free ip addresses are there in every subnetwork.
You can get large amounts of Voltage from a static charge. That is what causes the spark that jumps from material to material after creating a static "charge". The actual ampe…rage is usually quite small , but not always (think lightening). There is really no difference between static electricity and current electricity as they are both caused by an imbalance in Electrons. The materials that form the Imbalance work to correct the imbalance, and thus the spark is born. The spark can be collected through conductive materials and used to create a "charge" or electron imbalance in a capacitor or battery.
Static electricity is the branch of physics which deals with charges at rest, whereas, current electricity deals with charges in motion.
Static means it doesn't move. This is essentially what static electricity is, a charge tht has no current. It is made by the transfer of electrons, as a pose to a cell or batt…ery.
means that it's not moving (unlike electricity in a wire for example)
Static routes are known to be manual configured thus it does not change and its not dynamic. Advantages Static routes are simple and quick to configure.Stati…c routing is supported on all routing devices and all routers.Static routes are easy to predict and understand in small networks. Disadvantages Static routes require extensive planning and have high management overhead. The more routers exist in a network, the more routes that need to be configured. If you have 'N' number of routers and a route between each router is needed, then you must configure N x N routes, so, for a network of nine routers, you need 81 routes (9 x 9 = 81).Static routes do not dynamically adapt to network topology changes or equipment failures.Static routing does not scale well in large networks.
It is called static because from the word itself, static, means not moving or no action. Please note that the more accurate term is "static charge" because it means a charge …(surplus or deficiency of electrons) that is not moving. The basic unit of charge is the coulomb, which is 1.24 x 1018 electrons. If 1 coulomb per second is flowing past a point in a circuit, that is a current of 1 amp.
Static electricity is static. It's just shortened.
Static (meaning it does not move) electricity is an electric charge which is stored. One way to generate static electricity is to rub two things together, and one of the mater…ials picks up negatively charged electrons- making the item that has picked up electrons negative, and the other one positive. This charge does not move because of the material is resistant to flow, so there is no easy path for current flow. Capacitors store a static charge - an excess of electrons on on of the plates relative to the other plate. A capacitor can be 'charged up' via a battery or other voltage source.
A static IP address is where a computer keeps the same IP address every time it connects to the Internet. The advantage of a static IP is that you should not experience a …lapse in Internet connection as you would do with a dynamic IP. A disadvantage of a static IP is that some websites only allow a certain amount of content to be downloaded. The user would have to change their IP address to be able to download more data.
