### Description

This is a couple of additional physics topic questions. Including some relevent equations and definitions.

## Resource summary

 Question Answer Dangers of static electricity -explosions Fuel out of a filler pipe builds up a static. Leads to a spark. Explodes in a dusty fumey place. Uses of static electricity -electrostatic spray paint Spray gun charged, charges paint. Paint repels eachother=fine spray. Object is opposite charge attracts all paint. -even coat -not much waste paint -paints all object even when facing away from spray. How to prevent electrostatic charge building up? -Earth objects Connects charged object to ground. Easy oute for static charges. No charge build up. Electrons go up=Positive charge Electrons go down=Negative charge Current? -Rate of flow of charge round the circuit. Current will only flow if there is a voltage across that component. Voltage (potential difference)Driving force that pushes current around. Resistance? Anything in circuit which slows flow down. There is a balance? Voltage trying to push the current around the circuit. Resistance opposing it. Relative size of voltage and resistance decide how big the current.
