Bend running water from distance!

  • running water


Rub a comb to your head and place it next to a stream of water. Watch the stream bend!


When you rub the comb to your hair, electrons move from hairs to the comb. When you approach the water, the negatively charged comb repels the electrons found in the water. The water closest to the positioning of the comb receives positive charges from it.  Next positive charge of the water is attracted to the negative charge of the comb, thus the running water bends towards the comb.
