Transferring Charge by Contact


Some materials hold their electrons more loosely than other materials. When objects which are made of different materials come in contact with each other, electrons tend to collect on the object that holds the electrons more tightly. This is called transferring charge by contact. Both insulators and conductors can be charged by contact.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Describe the transfer of charge through contact.
- Explain that the transfer of electrons causes the transfer of charge when two objects come in contact.
- Describe that charged objects attract uncharged objects.
