Air "fresheners" typically just mask odors by putting out a stronger odor. However, electronic air cleaners are also able to destroy some odors. High voltage (DC) is applied across two plates as air passes between them. Three things occur that result in destroying odors when the voltage is applied. First, ozone is produced, which is a natural air freshener. Second, small particles are drawn to either the + or - voltage, depending on the natural charge of the particle. Third, many molecules are not able to remain stable in a voltage of that intensity resulting in a breakdown of the molecule into other compounds such as carbon and oxygen.
Yes. Static electricity can do work.I know because when I draw a rubber comb through my hair on a dry day and then pass itover a bunch of bits of tissue on the table, the bits of tissue jump straight up to the comb.The static charge on the comb exerted a force on the tissue bits, and the product of the forceon each bit multiplied by the distance through which it jumped is the work done on it by thestatic field.
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 amperage 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.
All the electricity you use has been created by humans. Electricity is energy which results from the behaviour of charged particles: electrons and protons. Electricity, as in electric current, can be created by man using machines such as generators to power tools and devices which are operated by electric power. Electricity can also occur naturally, and has done so since before humans were around to work out how to use it; lightning and static (frictional) electricity are examples.
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 positive 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.
