Static Electricity

Static Electricity to Current Electricity

You have seen that electric charge will move when electrostatic attraction or repulsion is applied. In order for the charge to move, however, some conditions must exist. These conditions will be explored in the section dealing with moving charge.

Electrostatic electricity can be described as "packets" of electricity. Static electricity results from the movement of negative charges (electrons) off one material to another material.

Whenever an electric charge is allowed to leave a charged object, a path called a conductor is regularly used. A conductor is most often a metal wire made of copper or aluminum, but it may have been an ionized liquid or gaseous solution.

When the electric charge traveled through a conductor, it is relatively small and the transfer takes place almost instantaneously. To transfer more charge, objects need to be rubbed together again. A charge builds up, and then a conductor is used to transfer another packet of charge. These packets of electricity travel through a conductor only irregularly because of the need to recharge the object after each transfer of electricity.
