All Charged Up!--Experimenting with Static Electricity
Roman, Harry T.
Tech Directions, v71 n2 p28-29 Sep 2011
Build-up of static electricity happens readily when the air is cold and dry and is a common part of life. There are lots of ways to make students aware of static electricity--and many things one can teach them about its applications in today's industry. In this article, the author describes examples and experiments that will bring static electrocity to the students' attention. Once the students are given some firsthand examples and experiences with static electricity, the author suggests challenging them to learn how engineers and scientists apply it for useful purposes.
