Comb rubbed with hair gains electrons becomes negatively charged ,attracts pieces of paper- Here charges are transferred from one body to another and remain at rest on surface of body - This is static electricity .Learn about how these charges can be transferred by different methods - 1) Charging by friction 2) charging by conduction 3) Charging by induction.Understand the magic of charges at rest and see how they can cause lightning during thundering.
