Static Charge distribution along textured surfaces

  1. Sep 12, 2014 #1
    How does the texture of a surface affect the concentration of charge on that surface?

    Say we compare a balloon (smooth) and a football (textured) (ignoring material differences) and give them the same total charge. Then we introduce dust particles. How do the two surfaces attract dust differently? Or are they different at all?
