ELECTRICITY Part 8 Static electricity and electric fields, uses and dangers - Electric fields, a simple way to create an electrostatic energy store - calculations of current flow in terms of electrical charge and time

Sub-index for this section on static electricity an electric field effects

8.1 Introduction - demonstrating and explaining static electricity

8.2 What is an electric field? 'maps' of an electric field and bringing charges together?

8.3 What happens if the static charge builds up on an object? - sparks and ionisation

8.4 More examples of static electricity, its effects in the home and anti-static agents

8.5 Some uses of static electricity effects - e.g. paint spraying, particle anti-pollution, photocopier

8.6 More on the nuisance and dangers of static electricity
