Static Electricity

Posted by on Jun 29, 2015 in Inquiry | 0 comments

 

Static electricity is the build up of an electrical charge on the surface of an object. It’s called “static” because the charges remain in one area for a while rather than moving or “flowing” to another area.

We see static electricity every day. It can even build up on us. For example, when we rub our feet on the carpet and then zap something when we touch it. That is static electricity that we have built up on the surface of our skin discharging onto another object. We also see it when our hair gets charged and sticks straight up or when our pant legs keep sticking to our legs no matter what we try and do. This is all static electricity that has built up on the surface of an object.

Yay it’s Friday the 26 of June 2015. It’s time to play rugby, they have called us up!

Mr Morgan chooses the people that go on and the subs and I’m one of the subs. I stand there cheering on my team mates.

Finally it’s time for me to go on field, as I run I feel my heart racing as if it’s going to jump right out of me and run away! Wow Tyler just got another try!

The games over we are told to line up behind our Captain (Josh) and shake the other teams hands. Afterwards they called out the result… We WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8-6.
Everyone around me is cheering, we can tell that this is going to be a great day!FullSizeRender

We did this experiment.

Why did this happen?

It happened because of capillary action.

What is that?

Capillary action is the ability of a narrow tube to draw a liquid upwards against the force of gravity. It occurs when the adhesive intermolecular forces between the liquid and solid are stronger than the cohesive intermolecular forces within the liquid.
