It's a non-conductor (of electricity).
the fast dissipation of static electricity (static charge).
Static electrical charge.
"Static electricity" is more accurately referred to as "static charge". Yes, of course you can. you just rub 2 good insulators together (plastic is recommended) and use it to pick up small bits of paper. static is electricity that doesn't move in a current. Or, run a plastic comb through your hair. It will take on a static charge.
The "static" in static electricity describes that the charge is unmoving, or staying in one place. A movement of electrons is not occuring, however there is an electrical charge. The opposite would be current electricity that flows, and that you would find in electric cords, etc...
It creates friction which, in turn, creates static electricity therefore giving the plastic a positive charge.
Lighting is caused by static charge, not that lighting is a static charge . It happen when unlike charge come in attraction.
it will produce static electricity and the static electricity will make the balloons stick together for about 2 seconds
It is static electricity.
The build up of a charge on an object can be referred to as a static build up charge.
on yourself: on a dry (not humid) day (usually in winter), rub your feet wearing synthetic soled shoes, on the carpet, your body will build up static charge which you can discharge by grounding to other objects. you can build a static charge on a plastic rod by rubbing it with fur. air masses build static charges by rubbing against each other. these are just a few ways.
Static electricity DOES have an electric charge.
