MATTER   anything that takes up space and has mass  
PROTONS   has a positive charge  
CHARGING BY FRICTION   when an object gains or loses electrons due to rubbing  
NEUTRON   carries a neutral charge  
PITH BALL   instrument used to detect an electric charge  
STATIC DISCHARGE   loss of static electricity as electrons move off an object  
WHICH SUBATOMIC PARTICLES IN THE ATOM CANNOT LEAVE THE ATOM?   protons and neutrons  
IF THE OBJECT HAS A + CHARGE THEN...   the object has more protons than electrons

Opposite charges to this to each other   attract  
IS THERE A FORCE OF ATTRACTION BETWEEN PROTONS AND ELECTRONS?   yes  
What part of an atom is allowed to move when making static electricity?   electrons  
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A NEGATIVELY CHARGED BALLOON IS BROUGHT NEAR STYROFOAM?   styrofoam pieces will be attracted  
CONDUCTION   the movement of electrons to other objects by touching  
If the object has a - charge then...   the object has more electrons than protons
