Static electricity is electricity that does not flow in a current. Static electricity generated by rubbing two nonmagnetic objects together. Friction between the two objects strips electrons from one object to the other. This is because when two objects rub electrons are being passed on to the other object making it causes a temporary side effect. These substances may include rubber, plastic, glass or pitch. The electrons that are transferred are stored on the surface of an object.
