Julie WB Sikes Electromagnetism Lab Indoor Sources: 1) Refrigerator Magnets: At the beginning of my quest, I first spied refrigerator magnets. In a magnet, atoms are lined up so that the negatively charged electrons are all spinning in the same direction. Like electric current, the movement of the electrons creates a magnetic force 2) Candles: I also have candles all over my house and I remembered reading in one of my chapters that the fire from a candle was created by electrons jumping back in forth, in an excited state, from shell to shell in an atom. Every time one of these electrons takes a quantum leap, a photon is emitted and electromagnetism performed. 3) Static in a brush: Found in bathroom. Chapter 5 states that this is created when you run a brush through your hair on a dry day; electrons are pushed into the comb from your hair, so the brush acquires a negative charge. Simultaneously, your hair loses electrons, so individual strands become positively charged.
