Answer: I am assuming your question is related to static electricity. (If you were asking about static on phone lines, please submit this as another question and I will respond accordingly.) When an object builds up an electric charge it is called static electricity. Static electricity is created by an imbalance of positive and negative charges. This occurs when the outer electrons from one substance get free from their atoms and attach to another substance, thus giving the second substance a negative charge. Electrons can get free when two items rub together creating friction—like your shoes shuffling across a rug. Two things with opposite charges will pull toward each other, creating a flow or current.
So yes, static is related to electricity, but static electricity is different from electrical current because it does not flow continuously. For more information about this, go to the Energy Science-SMART/Fire in the Sky/Science Concepts section of this website.
