Lots of VoltsScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Mike was a very intelligent kid. He told his fifth grade science teacher that he knew how to create thousands of volts of electricity with only a comb. The teacher didn't believe him and told him to prove it to her. The next day Mike proved it and brought information on the subject.
How did Mike do it?
AnswerHe brushed his hair with the comb. Brushing your hair with a comb separates the positive and negative charges in the comb and thousands of volts of static electricity can be measured.
