WHAKAMĀRAMA

Ka puta te hikotū mēnā kāore e taurite ana te whana tōraro (−) me te whana tōrunga (+) o tētahi mea. Ka takea mai te hikotū i te waku i waenganui i ētahi mea e rua, arā, ka ūkuia atu ētahi o ngā irahiko o ngā ngota o tētahi mea, ka whakawhitia atu ki te mea e wakuwaku ana. I konei, kāore e taurite ana te whana tōraro (−) me te whana tōrunga (+).

Static electricity occurs when there is an imbalance of negative and positive charges. Static electricity arises from friction between two things, where electrons are rubbed off the atoms of one object and are transferred to the rubbing material. Because of this, the negative and positive charges are out of balance.
