Does size affect static electricity? That’s because size can affect the way a material behaves. The size of the balls determines which force is more important, gravity or static electricity.
How does static electricity work with a balloon? Rubbing the balloon against hair or wool causes electrons to move from the hair or wool to the balloon. Because electrons are negatively charged, the balloon acquires a net negative charge. The balloon’s negative charges are attracted to the positive charges in the can, and so the can rolls toward the balloon.
How do you make a balloon more static? Rubbing the balloon onto your hair or onto the wool fabric adds electrons to the balloon and causes the balloon to become negatively charged. Like charges repel (the two balloons, once charged, will move away from each other) and opposite charges attract (the paper will be attracted to the charged balloons.)
Is static electricity on balloon positive or negative? When you rub a balloon on your head, electrons move from the atoms and molecules in your hair onto the balloon. Electrons have a negative charge, so the balloon becomes negatively charged, and your hair is left with a positive charge.
