In this experiment , we tried to understand static electricity . We generated static electricity in our school , by blowing up a balloon and rubbing it against our clothes. We were able to get our hair to stand up on our heads by rubbing them with the ballon.
We rubbed a pen with a cloth and then brought the pen close to small pieces of paper. The paper then moved due to static electricity.
The water moved away when we held the ballon close to it.
