Static electricity



So far in this topic, we’ve looked in detail at the flow of charge around an electric circuit.  In this last short section, we’ll learn about charges which don’t flow, their importance, and their effects – from sticky balloons to lightning bolts.

Please note that the question sheet for this video covers both static electricity and electric fields, which is the topic of the next video.
