What type of overall charge if any does the cloth in Diagram B have how do you know?
What type of overall charge, if any, does the cloth in Diagram B have?  A  Both the balloon and cloth are neutral. The charge is negative. Counting reveals that the number of negative charges exceeds the number  of positive charges.
What overall charge does the balloon have?
When you rub a balloon on a sweater, for example, some electrons come off and end up on the balloon. The fibers have lost electrons giving them a positive charge. The rubber gained electrons giving it a negative charge. Since electrons have a negative charge, the balloon now has a negative charge.
What has rubbing done to the charges on the objects shown in illustration A and B?
What has rubbing done to the charges on the objects shown in diagrams A and B? Rubbing has transferred electrons from the cloth to the balloon.
When a balloon is rubbed in your hair the balloon becomes negatively charged?
When you rub a balloon on your head, electrons move from the atoms and molecules in your hair onto the balloon. Electrons have a negative charge, so the balloon becomes negatively charged, and your hair is left with a positive charge.
Does the balloon or sweater have more net charge magnitude only on it why?
The balloon is composed of an insulated material, which means that it doesn’t pass charges easily, so it does not give any charges away in this process. Your sweater, that is composed of a softer material, can easily give away charges when rubbed against an insulated material.
When you charge a balloon by rubbing it on your hair this is an example of what method of charging?
Scientists have long known that rubbing two materials, such as a balloon on hair, causes electrostatic charging.
How does a balloon gain a positive charge?
The balloon is charged by rubbing it on your hair. When you put it near a neutral object (paper, Styrofoam or puffed rice cereal), the electrons in the object repel away from the balloon and the protons are attracted to the balloon. This movement of the electrons causes the neutral object to get a low positive charge.
Is a balloon a conductor or insulator?
Objects made of rubber, such as the balloon, are electrical insulators, meaning that they resist electric charges flowing through them. This is why only part of the balloon may have a negative charge (where the wool rubbed it) and the rest may remain neutral.
What type of charge is rubbing two objects together?
How Triboelectric Charging Works. The triboelectic charging process (a.k.a., charging by friction) results in a transfer of electrons between the two objects that are rubbed together.
What method of charging is done when you charge a balloon by rubbing it on your hair?
How does a balloon charge with static electricity?
- • 2 balloons.
- Blow up the balloons and tie a light string to each 2.
- Hold a balloon by the string and bring the balloon close to each of the materials.
- Rubbing the balloon onto your hair or onto the wool fabric adds electrons to the balloon and causes the balloon to become negatively charged.
Does the balloon and sweater have more net charge?
When students rub balloons on a wool sweater or on their hair, electrons get transferred from the wool or the hair to the balloon. So the balloon ends up with a net negative charge, and the sweater or hair, having lost negative charges, gets a net positive charge.
