Examples of Static Electricity?

Answer

Static electricity is a stationary charge that is typically produced by friction. It causes sparks or crackling as well as the attraction of dust or hair. Examples of static electricity include your clothes sticking together after drying (if you haven't used a liquid fabric softener or a dryer sheet), rubbing a balloon on your head and then bringing it close to a wall (the balloon will probably stick to the wall due to the stationary charge from your hair), shuffling your feet across a floor that is covered with carpet and then touching a metal object, and touching a doorknob during dry weather.
