- Why two objects get charged by rubbing? 2 answers
I am new to subject static electricity and I really got confused by some questions?
if the electrons in insulators are tightly bound to the nucleus why when rubbing two insulators electron jump from one to another?
in conducting wires when an electron jump from one atom to another they repel each other and form an electrical current but why when electron transfer from one insulator to another the the electrons from the second insulator doesn't repel the electron transferred from first insulator?
