Rub the inflated balloon on your clothing, especially on nylon material. A static charge will produce a spark when a finger is put near enough to the charged balloon.

How can you use a balloon with a negative charge to find out whether the charge on another balloon is positive or negative?

You can tell if the negative balloon attracts or repels the other balloon. If it attracts the balloon then it is a positive balloon. If it repels the balloon then it is a negative balloon.


Which charge does a balloon have when rubbed with a wooden sleeve?

The balloon will gain a negative charge and the woolen sleeve will gain a positive charge.


A rubbed balloon will stick to a wooden wall which demonstrated charge?

The rubbed balloon becomes negatively charged from the transfer of electrons. The wooden wall becomes positively charged because it loses some electrons to the balloon. Opposite charges attract, causing the balloon to stick to the wall.


Why the charged balloon wiill be attracted to the charged glass rod?

If charge on the balloon is induced due to the charge of the glass rod then there will be opposite charge and so balloon gets attracted by the rod. Unlike charges do attract each other

Why does a balloon that has has static electric charge stick to the wall?

A balloon that has a static electric charge can stick to a wall because opposite charges attract each other. The balloon carries a negative charge, while the wall carries a positive charge (due to electrons being transferred from the wall to the balloon). This attraction between the opposite charges causes the balloon to stick to the wall.

What electrical charge does a balloon have if the protons and electrons are the same?

Obviously , it will be a positive charge.


Why a balloon now negatively charged?

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.
