  • Question 14
    45 seconds
    Q. What is the major difference between static electricity and current electricity?
    answer choices
    Current electricity involves a continuous flow of neutrons; static electricity is a sudden transfer of protons
    Current electricity can be deadly; static electricity is almost always safe
    In current electricity, there's a single transfer of electrons; in static electricity, there's a steady flow of electrons
    Current electricity involves a flow of electrons; static electricity involves a single transfer of electrons
