This video shows that I rubbed a spoon with fur then put it towards the spoon. At first the spoon attracts the cork and once it fell off the spoon it repelled away from the spoon.

On March 5th and 6th we had a assignment we had to do we grabbed many different items and rubbed it with other certain materials to check and see if they would repel or attract. After checking all of the items here are the results

Cork Piece Ebonite Copper Aluminum Straw Glass Wood Lucite Spoon
Fur Repels Attracts Attracts Attracts then repels Attracts Attracts Attracts Repels
Polyester Attracts Attracts Attracts Repels Attracts Little attraction Nothing Attracts
Cotton Repels Repels Very little attraction Attracts Attracts Very little attraction Very strong attraction Repels
Silk Attracts Attracts Attracts  Super Attracts Attracts Nothing Very strong attraction Repels
Wool Attracts Nothing Nothing Attracts Attracts Attracts Repels Repels
Garbage Bag Attracts Nothing Attracts Attracts Nothing Nothing Nothing Attracts

In the end the results were very diverse. All of the items used had very different results depending on the material used to rub it. The spoon was the coolest thing to use. Watch the video if you didn’t see it yet to see the attraction of the spoon.
