Question:

If you rub a piece of PVC pipe with some wool and touch the PVC to Aluminum foil. Will the PVC be charged after rubbing it with wool? Will the aluminum be charged? Finally can the PVC cause the aluminum to move? Explain (hint: can the PVC give charge to the aluminum?)

Electric charge:

In physics, the physical property of the particle or an object placed in an electromagnetic field tends to move the particle with the help of a force, this property of particle is known as electric charge.

Answer and Explanation:


When we rub a piece of PVC pipe with some wool, then due to the rubbing PVC pipe will get charged. If we bring the charged PVC close to the aluminum, it will move the aluminum from its original position, because the charge transformation takes place between the PVC pipe and the aluminum.


Thus, the answer is yes, the aluminum will get charged.
