Physics 320 Experiment 7 Sticky Tape Electrostatics DATA SHEET Name: William Zacharias Date: 5/30/2010 Prediction Can a piece of adhesive tape hold an electric charge? If so, will the charge be positive or negative? I predict that an adhesive piece of tape can and will hold a charge. The charge of the tape will determine what action(s) the tape goes through. Data and Questions 1. Was the force between two “T” tape strips attractive or repulsive? The force of the two “T” pieces was repulsive. 2. Can you tell if the charge on the “T” tape strips is positive or negative? Explain. I could not tell initially what the charge of the tape was going to be but a charge was applied to the tape as soon as it was pulled from the roll. 3. Was the force between a “T” and a “B” attractive or repulsive? The force between the “T” and the “B” was attractive 4. Was the force between two “B” tape strips attractive or repulsive? The charge of the “B” strips was also repulsive.
