static-electricity-scienceConcept: Static Electricity

This is an amusing dinner-table stunt to show friends on dry winter days when static electricity is easy to produce.  Shake a pile of salt on a tablecloth, flatten it with your finger, then shake some pepper on top of it.  The problem is to remove the pepper from the salt.

Not many people are likely to think of the easy solution.  Just put a static charge on a pocket comb by running it a few times through your hair.  Bring one end of the comb to about an inch above the salt.  The grains of pepper, which are lighter than the salt grains, will jump to the comb!
