Static Electricity- Static electricity is all around us, you may have experienced it without even knowing it. For, example imagine sliding down the slide and by the time you get to the bottom of the slide your hair is standing up. The reason why your hair stood up was because of the friction of the slide. It has caused a positive charge on each piece of your hair. Since each piece of your hair has the same charge, they all are trying to push away from each other, causing your hair to stand up looking crazy. Another example of static electricity is when you have just did a load of laundry and you go to the dryer to take your clothes out to wear them…you may feel a small shock or tingle feeling up and down your body.
