    Any method can generate a large amount of elec charges?

    Any material can generate a large amount of elec charges? For example a small object can contain a large amount of elec charges?

    I am infesting in some scientific show, example a balloon can push a coca can, can you show something big.

    You can generate static charge using frictional means - by rubbing silk and glass or wool and plastic for example (How charge was discovered by the ancient greeks). The same principle can be scaled up to a Van de Graff generator, creating a larger amount of static. You could do the 'hair-raising' experiment with one of those, wher a person holding the metal sphere of the generator has their hair standing up, due to like charges building up on each hair.


    PHI is one 'H' of alot more interesting than PI!
