Electrostatics

===Electrostatic pressure=== This pressure tends to draw the conductor into the field, regardless of the sign of the surface charge. ==Triboelectric series== The triboelectric effect is a type of contact electrification in which certain materials become electrically charged when they are brought into contact with a different material and then sepa...

electrostatics

electrostatics, study of phenomena associated with charged bodies at rest (see charge; electricity). A charged body has an excess of positive or negative charges, a condition usually brought about by the transfer of electrons to or from the body. Such bodies exert forces on each other, as described ...

electrostatics

Study of stationary electric charges and their fields (not currents). See static electricity. Charged materials behave differently if they are brought near to each other. Materials of like charge, that is both positive or both negative, will move away from each other (repelled by electrostatic force). Materials of opposite charge, that is one posit...
