What is Static?

Static can be a couple of things. It is what you will get from your teacher if you don’t do your science homework. It is also an electrical form of attraction and charge. You can create it by rubbing a balloon over your hair and your hair will stick up a bit. A humid day does that to hair pretty well too. Static is very bad for electronic components and people who build electronics often wear grounding straps to discharge any static they may build up through movement.
