Question

Dr. Mayssa Amin 4/5/2011 3


 A charged comb often attracts small
bits of dry paper that then fly away
when they touch the comb. Explain.

Dr. Mayssa Amin 4/5/2011 4


 When the comb is
nearby, molecules in
the paper are
polarized and the
paper is attracted.

Dr. Mayssa Amin 4/5/2011 5


 During contact,
charge from the
comb is transferred
to the paper by
conduction.
 Then the paper has
the same charge as
the comb, and is
repelled.
