Static Electr­icity

Static electr­icity is caused by the movement of electrons. It is due to the stored charge on an item (imbalance of charges).
It is usually produced by friction.
Examples include: rubbing your hair with a balloon and rubbing your feet across a carpet.
The charges are statio­nar­y/s­tored.

1) Unlike charges attract
2) Like charges repel
