I was observing from many days, how hairs seems to be sticking to water, when made to fall on it. I made an attempt to know what really was going on. I kept a jug of stationary water under the light, and kept my dry hairs combing, to make hairs fell on it. I observed once again that hairs appeared to be sticking to water.
I started thinking about the cause for this observation. At first, what went to my mind was about hairs being rubbed with comb. Usually hairs get positively charged (I don't know exactly. I thought it because plastic becomes negatively charged when rubbed with most of other suitable surface) when rubbed with plastic comb. We also know that water has more negative charge because of oxygen atom (I came to know about this from the diagram of wiki encyclopedia-electronegativity). So, I thought positively charged hairs might be attracted by negative charge nature of water molecules, which might be making hairs to stick with water.
Is it really because of positively charged hairs and negatively charged water molecules, which is making hairs to be sticking to water?
