When was static electricity first discovered?
i have no idea? i know that thales was the first to discover static electricity.
Albert Edison is the one who discovered electricity.
Thales of miletus conducted first experiments on static electricity.Then we can say that it was he how discovered electricity
The effects of static electricity were first discovered by the Greeks. In the sixth century BC the Greek philosopher Thales found that amber, when rubbed with fur, could attract little pieces of dry straw.
The Greek word elektron means "amber." Static electricity was first discovered by rubbing amber.
Ancient Greeks discovered static electricity in 600 B.C. Thomas Browne was the first to use the word electricity. Benjamin Franklin did experiments to prove that lightning was electricity.
It has been found that thomas r becket has been the discoverer of not only static electricity but also electricity.
in ancient greece
William Gilbert was bored and decided to invent something new. He found cords and stuff and invented static electricity
Electricity has always existed. No one invented or created it. And since people have known about lightning and static electricity since time immemorial, it would be hard to say when it was first discovered.
The ancient Greeks. But a better answer is Michael Faraday.
In 600 B.C ,the Ancient Greeks discovered that rubbing fur on amber caused an attraction between the two and so what the Greeks discovered was static electricity.
The Greeks first discovered static electricity about 2,000 years ago and used it to make compasses for navigating. There were some clay pot batteries discovered in Baghdad, Iraq; that date back about 2000 years also. They have not been able to figure out what the batteries were used for.
Thales discovered static electricity by rubbing a peice of amber against a silk cloth.
Although, electricity was not explicitly discovered, it was known that iodestone posessed magnetic properties, and when amber and jet were rubbed together, it attracted things (static electricity). In 1600 English scientist William Gilbert made a careful study of electricity and magnetism and coined the term electricus which further evolved in to electric and electricity. In June 1752 , Benjamin Franklin conducted first experiment in which he attached a metal key to the bottom of a… Read More
Static Electricity is Static Electricity, "Compare and 'Contrast static electricity' and current electricity" is a relevant question.
static electricity is static electricity
static electricity is electricity.
Thales discovered static electricity accidently in 585 BC when he rubbed by chance fur and amber and observed that with it he could attract very light weighted objects like feathers etc.
static electricity can be called high voltage static electricity can be called high voltage static electricity can bend water
Static electricity is static. It's just shortened.
Static electricity is first created in the clouds then with enough charge the electricity grounds itself to the earth and what you see is the flow of static electricity shifting from the clouds to the ground
Static electricity can't because first off it all it is the transferreing of electrons to other atoms. It can atucallty pollute the air.
No they did not have electricity. Electricity was first discovered in the 18th century
How does static electricity start?
The more humidity the less static electricity. The less humidity the more static electricity.
Yes, static electricity is dangerous if it is sufficiently large. For example, lightning is a form of static electricity. A tv is also a static charge.
static in static electricity is the bombardment of electron from super natural energy towards the current.it occupy a space in current cavities..thus the staticity icreases...this is the static in static electricity
Static electricity constitutes of charges that are static i.e. they do not move.
No one invented static electricity. It is a natural occurrence, however Around 600 BCE, a Greek mathematician named Thales was the first to record the phenomenon.
Static electricity was discovered in the 1600's, up to making sparks with rubbing amber against each other... Benjamin Franklin is the most famous discoverer however, due to his string, kite, key experiment... Many men throughout the ages have all "DISCOVERED" electricity, contributing to what we now consider to be the norm.
Static electricity translates into electrons not in motion. Typically, you rub rubber on fur to get static electricity. I get static electricity from petting my cat (I am a rubber of my cat, but I am not made of rubber.)
You can move things with static electricity!
Easy static electricity
everything electronic is static electricity
Benefits of Static Electricity are that you can learn more more about that type of electricity and it can be displayed. If you ever wonder what a shock is you know that it may be static electricity
As the word static means motionless or stationary, the static electricity refers to electrons that are stationary. Hence, static electricity is a charge and not a current.
A philosopher named Thales discovered it when he rubbed a cloth on a hard-fossilized material called Amber it would pick the straw in his barn up.
Static electricity is produced as plastic is a insulator which can keep static charges build up. But metals cannot hold static electricity as they are a good conductor of electricity and cannot hold static electricity as charges keep on flowing through them.
static electricity is important because it is a type of lightning.some myths are when there is static electricity it means the god is angry with us.
Becuase static electricity is generated by rubbing or by friction.
No. Wood cannot create static electricity because it is not a conductor of electricity.
how does matter affect static electricity???
Static electricity occurs in everything that has electrons.
static energy is energy at rest.
Lightning is (the discharge of) static electricity.
There are many ways of producing static electricity. The best way to get static electricity quickly is to rub your head on a balloon.
Electricity was not invented, but discovered, and the one who discovered it was William Gilbert who discovered it first.
it is similar because the electrons in the electricity travels around and even in the static electricity
No one made electricity but they discovered it. Electricity was not invented; it occurs naturally and is an important part of keeping our physical universe in balance. Forms of natural electricity include lightning, static electricity, and the reactions of charged particles. However, legend has it that Benjamin Franklin was the first to realize that we could harness and use that energy for our own purposes when he was struck by lightning while flying a kite… Read More
