When a balloon is rubbed with a wool cloth it becomes negatively charged why?
A balloon becomes negatively charged when rubbed against someone's sleevehow does it becomes charged?
objects can be negatively charged when it is rubbed with another object; a woolen cloth for example. this is because the electrons from the woolen cloth will be transferred to the object which is being rubbed! only electrons can be transferred to the object and make the object becomes negatively charged.
1. Rubbing the balloon to your hair causes the balloon to "steal" electrons from your hair. 2.The balloon has a buildup of electron so it has a negative charge. your hair has lost electrons so it becomes positively charged. 3.Because opposites attract the negatively charged balloon will stick or if there are enough electrons on the balloon they will try and "Jump" the wall and will make a small zap by:Zimran Reubin
When a balloon is rubbed with a wool cloth, the electrons from the atoms of the wool cloth enter the atoms of the balloon and thus, the number of electrons in the atoms of balloon becomes more than the number of protons. Hence, there is a net negative charge in the balloon, whereas in the wool cloth the number of electrons in its atoms become less than the number of protons, hence there is a…
What kind of electric charge gets developed on the glass rod when it is rubbed with a piece of silk cloth?
This has to do with the charge of the objects. Positively charged items stick to negatively charged items (think "opposites attract"). Though objects like hair and balloons are generally neutral (without a charge) and do not attract anything, this can be changed through the transfer of electrons. Electrons are negatively charged subatomic particles that can be transferred between items through contact. When you rub a balloon on your hair, the contact between your hair and…
When you rub a balloon onto your hair or piece of clothing, the balloon collects the electrons (negative charge) from the hair or clothing you rubbed it on. The balloon now has more electrons (negative charge) than protons (positive charge) making it have a negative charge. The hair or clothing has more protons than electrons making it have a positive charge.
For example as glass rob is rubbed with silk then glass becomes positively charged and silk negatively charged. This is mainly because of the transfer of electrons right from glass to silk. But in case of ebonite rod rubbed with fur electrons get transferred from fur to ebonite. So ebonite becomes negatively charged and fur positive charged Now in case of an atom or molecule one or more electrons get removed and so that atom…
How can you use the electrostatic series to determine how two different substances will become charged when rubbed against one another?
A charged object is a matter that either has a surplus of electrons negatively charged or a deficiency of electrons positively charged. When two objects are rubbed together, some electrons from one object move to another object. For example, when a plastic bar is rubbed with fur, electrons will move from the fur to the plastic stick. Therefore, plastic bar will be negatively charged and the fur will be positively charged.
If electrons are rubbed from cat's fur onto a rubber rod does the cats fur become positively or negatively charged?
when a glass rod is rubbed with silk cloth, some of the electrons are removed from the atoms of the glass rod and deposited on the silk leaving negatively carged and glass positively charged Different materials have different electron affinities, meaning electrons will tend to gravitate towards certain materials over others. When silk is rubbed against a glass rod, the atoms of the rod and the atoms of the silk interact, and the silk atoms…
An unknown material is rubbed with silk and becomes charged Explain how you could use a negative acetate strip or a positive glass rod to determine the type of charge on the unknown material?
If you move the material near the negative acetate strip and they repel each other, the material negatively charged. If they move towards each other, it is positively charged. If you move the material near the positive rod and they attract, the material is negatively charged. If they repel, it is positively charged. This is because opposite charges attract and same charges repel.
Both are originally have equal electrons and protons. After rubbing, electrons move to the duster, from the rod. The duster, as it gains electrons, has more electrons than protons, therefore becoming negatively charged. The rod, losing electrons, becomes negatively charged. then, the rod is able to momentarily pick up little bits of paper for short periods at a time.
The balloon has taken on a static charge. This happens when electrons move from one object to another when two objects, one of which is resistant to electrical flow, are rubbed together. This, in turn, causes the charged materials to be attracted to things with opposite charge, or no charge, and to be repelled by things similarly charged.
Why does a silk rod become positively charged when rubbed with silk but negatively charged when rubbed with fur?
I believe that the experiment consists of a GLASS Rod being rubbed with Silk or Fur! When rubbed with Silk, Electrons are transferred to the Silk from the Glass...this leaves the Glass with a Net Positive set of IONS and a PLUS Charge. When rubbed with Fur, Electrons are transferred to the Glass from the Fur...this leaves the Glass with a Net Negative set of IONS and a Negative Charge.
When rubbing a balloon with a wool cloth, it puts negative charges on the balloon. Negative charges attract to positive charges. If a balloon is not rubbed with the wool cloth, it has an equal amount of negative to positive charges, so it will attract to a rubbed balloon. When both balloons are rubbed with the wool cloth, the both receive negative charges, so they will repel each other.
What happens to the atoms in an object to generate a charge imbalance when it is rubbed with a duster?
What is the difference between the charges on a balloon rubbed in your hair and a glass rod rubbed with silk why?
There is a very big difference between the electrical charge of a balloon rubbed in a person's hair and a glass rod rubbed with silk. The charge from the balloon will just make it stick to objects. The charge from the glass rod will emit a very large electrical shock that might knock a person to the ground. This is because the glass rod is a better conductor of electricity than the balloon.
