My topic is all about how hair color could affect the amount of static electricity it createsStatic electricity is very important to us because we see it make it and pass it on Static electricity is everything we see is made up of tiny little parts called atoms The atoms are made of even smaller parts These are called protons electrons and neutrons They are very different from each other in many ways One way they are different is their charge Protons have a positive charge Electrons have a negative - charge Neutrons have no charge Usually atoms have the same number of electrons and protons Then the atom has no charge it is neutral But if you rub things together electrons can move from one atom to another Some atoms get extra electrons They have a negative charge Other atoms lose electrons They have a positive charge When charges are separated like this it is called static electricity If two things have different charges they attract or pull towards each other If two things have the same charge they repel or push away from each otherStatic electricity is the result of an imbalance between negative and positive charges in an object These charges can build up on the surface of an object until they find a way to be released or discharged One way to discharge them is through a circuit The rubbing of certain materials against one another can transfer negative charges or electronsObviously electricity cannot be several different things at the same time Unfortunately we have defined the word Electricity in a crazy way Because the word electricity lacks one distinct meaning we can never pin down the nature of electricity In the end we are forced to declare that theres no such stuff as electricity at all Heres a quick example to illustrate the problem Do generators make electricity To answer this question consider the household
