Static Electric Fields

Have you ever been shocked?

Hopefully you have never been shocked too bad. It can really hurt!

Have you ever walked across a carpet and then touched a doorknob only to feel the ZAP!

Have you ever noticed how clothes removed from a dryer sometimes cling to each other and spark or crackle when you separate them? This is commonly called static cling. What exactly is causing all of this?
