Question
Hello sir

Sir please explain clearly according to my age level my age is 14 yrs. Sir my question is what is the differnce from static force and static electricity. Sir are they same.

Thankyou

Answer
Hi Aishwaeaymeti,

No they are not the same.

A static force is one that is constantly applied such as a weight resting on a beam. It is a force.

Static electricity is so called because it does not move in wires like AC or DC current.
It remains in one place with very little movement. It will move along a conductor to earth.
It is an electric charge not a mechanical force.

I hope this helps.
Best wishes,
Kevin.
