Unformatted text preview: inflates a balloon by blowing into it. The
end of the balloon is then tied. The balloon is rubbed with fur and develops an
electrostatic charge. The balloon is placed against the ceiling and released. It
remains “stuck” to the ceiling.
The teacher then presents the following challenges to the students:
• explain how the balloon received the electrostatic charge
• explain why the balloon is attracted to the ceiling
• provide a procedure that would determine if the charge on the balloon
is positive or negative. Include a list of any additional equipment
• provide a procedure that could be used to determine if there is a
relationship between the amount of rubbing and the amount of charge
developed on an inflated balloon. Include a list of any additional
equipment needed. Written Response—15%
