Brusspup has released a new video featuring awesome science tricks using static electricity. They show how to make a plate hover in the air, how to pull an aluminum can across a table, and more.
They say opposites attract and that couldn’t be truer with these fun static electricity experimentsAll of these tricks take advantage of static electricity. In general, the lower the humidity, the better these tricks will work.
The most impressive one to me is the floating bag trick. Depending on the conditions, you can float an entire grocery sack.
Styrofoam plates are great for static electricity tricks. When you give them a charge and hold one above the other, you can feel an incredible amount of resistance.
