STATIC ELECTRICITY
Electrostatics The study of the behavior of static electricity is called elec-trostatics. The word static means stationary or at rest, and electric charges that are at rest are called static electricity. A material with atoms containing equal numbers of electrons and protons is electrically neutral. If the number of electrons in that material should increase or decrease, the material is left with a static charge. An excess of electrons creates a negatively charged body; a deficiency of electrons creates a positively charged body. This excess or deficiency of electrons can be c…
