How To Bend Water with Static Electricity

Need simple Purpose:
To demonstrate visually that oppositely charged electrons are attracted to each other.

Simple Hypothesis:
A statically charged object (plastic comb, balloon, etc.) will attract a thin stream of flowing water and visually "bend" it.

Material and Procedure Used:
Plastic comb, or latex balloon, rubbed so that it is statically charged
Thin stream of flowing water

1. Rub the comb through hair, or rub the balloon against hair, to statically charge it.
2. Turn on a faucet down low, so that a thin stream flows.
3. Bring the statically charged comb or balloon CLOSE to the flowing stream of water, but DO NOT let it touch.
4. As the object draws near the water, the thin stream of water should "bend," or curve towards the object, as the water is attracted to the statically-charged object.
