If a charged plastic straw is brought near another uncharged plastic straw, what will happen?


When a charged plastic straw is brought close to the uncharged plastic straw, it will attract uncharged plastic straw because charges of different kinds attract one another.

Electric Charge

Electric Charge is a fundamental property of matter and never found free. Positive and negative charges are the two types of electric charges. A body is considered to be negatively charged if it contains an excess of electrons, and positively charged if it has a deficiency of electrons.

  1. Electric charge is a scalar quantity.
  2. Like charges repel and unlike charges attract.
  3. Electric charge is conserved. It can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transferred from one object to another.
