Solution
Verified by Toppr

Basis for comparison Static Electricity Electric current
Definition The electricity which is build up on the surface of the substance is known as the static electricity. The current electricity is because of the flow of electrons.
Causes It induces because of the movement of the negative charges from one object to another The current electricity is because of the movement of the electrons.
Material The static electricity develops both in the conductor and insulator. The current electricity develops only in conductor
Magnetic Field Not induces the magnetic field.It induces magnetic field.
Time period Exist for short time. Exist for long time.
Measuring Device Gold leaf electroscope Analog and digital meter.
Examples Lightning strokes, it develop by rubbing the balloons on hair, etc. The current electricity is used for running the fan, light, T.V etc.
