GR – Ledger Nr. 37 – Static Electricity and the Balloon Experiment

Pupils from 2nd Grade Classroom of our school made their own physics experiments with their ..magic balloons.

The experiment in plain English:

We take an inflated  balloon and rub it on a woolen piece of cloth. We observe that the balloon attracts small pieces of paper.

The explanation is simple:

Electrons are separated from the materials while rubbing and they are charged. The inflated balloon attracts the pieces of paper because powers occur between charged materials.
