Problem 4E

Why do clothes often cling together after tumbling in a clothes dryer?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 4E Clinging of clothes refers to attraction between clothes having charges of different charge polarities. After tumbling, one piece of cloth may get negative charges and the other positive charges.. In other words, static electricity is generated on the clothes. If each piece is oppositely charged, they end up in clinging due to attraction between opposite polarity charges.
