5/6 Static Electricity

How does electricity transfer energy?

By exploring static electricity and how electricity in nature can transfer from one object to another we could see that it was done – we just had to work out how. Because we had learned about Atoms earlier in the year a couple of us remembered that the Electrons on the ‘outside’ of an atom can transfer to another atom. This is the Charge we see or feel when objects rub together and generate friction. Then the atoms set about trying to balance or neutralise themselves back again.
