Let's have some fun with static electricity!!

2 books of equal thickness
Tissue paper
A small piece of glass
A woolen towel or a scarf

Position the books opposite to each other. Now fit in the glass piece between the pages and make sure that the glass is leveled. The glass should look like a bridge connecting the two books.

Now cut the paper into small bits.

Put the paper bits under the glass. now rub the woolen towel or scarf on the glass.

Observe: The bits of paper bounce up and down because of static electricity you made when you rubbed the glass with a woolen towel or scarf.
