Problem 6E

When you remove your wool suit from the dry cleaner’s garment bag, the bag becomes positively charged. Explain how this occurs.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 6E During the process of removing the woolen suit from the garment bag, the garment bag gets rubbed by the woolen suit. This rubbing causes electron transfer from garment bag to woolen suits. The total charge of the garment bag is zero because of the number of electron and proton in the garment bag is zero. Now in this process, since the electron get transferred to the woolen suits, the number of electron in the garment become less than the number of proton. Since proton number in the garment bag become higher, the bag become positively charged.
