The pen attracts the paper
2. Rub a plastic object on your sleeve and then near but not touching a thin stream of water from the Tap , what happens
The water moves towards the plastic object
3. when certain insulationg materials are rubbed against each other they become
• Electrically charged
• Electrically charged objects attract small objects near them
4. When two electrically charged objects are brought together they
Exert a force on each other
5. Two charged objects may either
Pull towards each other (attract) or push each other away (repel)
6. Two objects that carry the same type of charge
Repel
7. Two objects that carry different types of charges
Attract
8. A) A + charged object x and another charged object y repel each other what is thebtype of charge on y
B) y is removed and a - charged object z is bought near to x . State whether x and z attract or repel each other
• A) +
• B) attract
9. One strip of plastic is electrically charged and + , the other strip is uncharged , the strips of plastic are then moved close to each other , which two of the following statements are true
A) the strips will attract each other
B) the strips will repel each other
C) the strips will have no effect on each other
D) if the uncharged strip is given a + charge , the strips will attract each other
E) if the uncharged strip is given a + charge the strips will repel each other
A and E
10. When two different materials are rubbed against each other  - charged electrons are
Rubbed off one material on to the other . The material which gains electrons becomes - charged ; the material which looses electrons is leftwhich an equal + charge

13. A) In an experiment , an insulator becomes - charged when it is rubbed with a dry cloth . In terms electron transfer , explain why the insulator becomes - charged
B) explain why the insulator does not lose its charged
• The charged electorns are rubbed off the cloth to the insulator , the insulator gains electrons and becomes - charged
• B) because electrons can not flow through an insulator
14. A plastic rubber is rubbed on a duster . The ruler becomes - charged . Which two statements are true
A) the duster has also become - charged
B) the duster has gained electrons
C) the duster has lost electrons
D) the ruler has gained electrons
E) the ruler has lost electrons
C and D
