rubbing together the 2 materials and testing for static charge in the static discovery lab showed us how the charged object would react when we rubbed it on the electroscope and how strongly it would react, most of the objects didn’t have that much of a reaction depending on what it was and why.
the three most important things that we learned in the static electricity unit were
1- atoms + subatomic particles
2. conductors/ insulators
3- we learned the different ways to produce static charge
