Part One: Several examples of static electricity are shown in this first part with a concentration on explaining the basis of inducing a static change on insulators verses conductors.
Note on the falling powder demonstration: This was something that I discovered as I was in the middle of making the video. I was quite surprised to see the powders spread out as I was expecting to see it all being attracted to the charges. I would love to hear explanations as to why this is happening.
Part two will be posted next week
Part two will give more examples of static electricity demonstrations and will examine the difference between induction versus conduction.
