I'm learning about static electricity. All the examples always bring up the experiments with rubbing a balloon with your hair and combinations like that. I've found a page that lists what kind of charges certain materials tend to have. http://www.school-for-champions.com/science/static_materials.htm So now i'm wondering, is it possible to attach a negative electrode of a 12V source to a piece of glass and expect that it will get positively charged? Could i also connect myself to the negative electrode and expect that I will also be positively charged? Both myself and the glass will be standing on a insulator. I'm going to try that, and post the results.
