Can be used to clarify several concepts about static electricity, such as:

- Objects may be electrically neutral, possess an overall positive charge or    possess an overall negative charge.

- Charging objects can be accomplished by two methods; Charging by         Conduction ("contact" with a charged object) or; Charging by                 Inuction ("non-contact" proximity to a charged object).

- Like charges repel one another, unlike charges attract one another and a   charged object will attract a neutral object.

- Conductors and insulators can be charged by both charging methods
