How do Photocopiers Work?

Ever noticed everything is hot after you use a copy machine? It’s because they use static electricity. Once the drum inside the copy machine is ‘charged’ it releases a toner that is charged to the parts where ink is on your paper, creating a virtual static copy. The blank paper then pulls the toner off of the drum, which is fairly hot due to the static charge, and viola! Copy. Now you know why your butt burned when you tried to make a copy of it last week when the boss wasn’t looking. Have fun!
