“Tribo-electric” is a modern term with ancient roots – from the Greek word for “rub.”
Its electricity is created from friction between two substances causing a charge of electrons to be transferred from one to the other.
It commonly happens, for instance, when plastic-soled shoes are in contact with a nylon carpet, causing the snap of static discharge when one’s hand touches a metal doorknob.
