All about the triboelectric effect, including the triboelectric series (or table), how triboelectricity works, some examples of the triboelectric effect and how humidity and dryness affect it. The examples given are:
- rubbing a rubber balloon against human hair
- rubbing vinyl and a glass together
- rubbing socks on carpet
- running a comb through your hair
- cars charged using triboelectricity
- a Van de Graaff machine's belt and pulleys

An electroscope is used to check the charge. For more on electroscopes, see:
