Because there is a potential difference between two objects.

Potential differnce. For example, when too much voltage is built up within a thunderhead, the potential difference is high and a discharge occurs.

When discharge occurs, it means that charge moves, and that's a short lived electric current. Rapidly changing electric current causes radio interference, because of the electromagnetic field associated with it.

An electrical insulator is a material whose internal electric charges do not flow freely, and therefore make it nearly impossible to conduct an electric current under the influence of an electric field. This contrasts with other materials, semiconductors and conductors, which conduct electric current more easily.Electric discharge in gases occurs when electric current flows through a gaseous medium due to ionisation of the gas. Depending on several factors, the discharge may radiate visible light.

lightning is an example of electrical discharge

It is not necessary to call a doctor if an unexplained discharge of blood occurs.

A static charge is just an excess (or lack) of electrons from the surface atoms of a substance, always a non-conductor. The discharge occurs when the "free" electrons find a low resistance path to ground.

There are many different types of electrostatic discharge. Some examples include electric sparks such as from lightning, corona discharge, and brush discharge.

Ovulation occurs when your egg is released. This usually occurs about 14 days after your last period. A discharge is simply a substance that leaks from your vagina. You may notice a white substance in your underwear, which is known as a discharge.

It's an electric discharge.

I believe this answer that each of these two are powered by different things.

No, this isn't a sign of pregnancy. Discharge occurs depending on where you are in your cycle (pre-pregnancy) and the discharge will increase during pregnancy.

yes, you can get a government job with a general discharge as long as there was no dishonorable reasons for the discharge. Sometimes you will have to explain the discharge. Try the Postal Service and USDA.

The electric current spalls metal into the machining liquid, and the metal cools to form metal "dust" that is carried away by the liquid.

The visible electric discharge is lightning. The sound you hear shortly afterwards is thunder.
