Is static electricity fun or dangerous?

"Static Electricity" can be extremely dangerous, if static charges are released in an inflammable atmosphere eg in an enclosed space, fuel tanks ashore or on board cargo vessels (tankers). Static charge may result in massive explosion with loss of life, property and environment.


How does an object an electric charge?

An object gains an electric charge through the net accumulation of negative or positive charges (the latter created by net loss of electrons). This can occur in several ways, including: 1) within an electric field 2) within a magnetic field 3) when acted upon by atmospheric ionization (thunderstorms) 4) when charged by static electricity (mechanical energy, typically by rubbing certain materials).

Is lightning a electrical discharge?

If we are talking about discharge through a gas such as the atmosphere, this is a breakdown in the normally insulating gas due to ionisation of the gas molecules and hence conduction of current, the discharge will cause visible light to be emitted. This is lightning in nature.


How can an object be charged?

a negatively charged repels a positivley charged object


How a plastic ruler can become negativiely charged?

Technically, it doesn't. Static electricity is not something some things have or don't have. It is built up by two objects coming in contact with eachother. Some objects are more negative or positive than others, and the more positive items tend to lose their electrons more easily than the negatives, who tend to gain electrons. The gain/loss of electons happens on contact. Rubbing creates more contact, and therefore more gain/loss. The shock comes when a positively charged object touches a grounded item, such as a metal post or a person. Electrons jump to the object through the grounded item from the ground. If said object is a human, (s)he will feel a jolt of electricity, which we call static. Note: I call positive objects positive because they become positive on contact. I use the same reasoning with negative objects.


Can you reduce pressure loss and friction loss on pipelines with electricity?

no you can not


What happens if electricity travels long distances?

Increased wire or cable length causes the voltage to drop, this loss of charge is converted to heat and can cause electrical fires and damage to electronics.
