Collaboration Fluencies-Static Electricity

Examine:

When examining our chart I found that the most successful pair was fur with a combination of either ebonite, or the plastic spoon. There are a few other materials that were also successful like the glass rod and fur, however it didn’t attract as much as the other combinations. The first day we used acetate to see which combination repelled or attracted the most; the second day we used cork balls (Pith balls) to see which combination would make it repel or attract. Our team worked well in a team and we collaborated in order to find success. One thing we should work on next time is organisation.
