When you rub a balloon on your hair, electrons are transferred onto the balloon. Using the terms “electrons” and “protons”, and “negative” and “positive”, explain why a rubbed balloon is attracted to and sticks to a wall even though you didn’t rub the balloon on the wall.

Electrons are negative charges, while protons are positive charges. Just like magnets, one side is negative and the other side is positive making it attract with each other. The balloon still has charges when you rubbed it on your hair making it stick to the wall since it has electrons.
Simple because opposite charges attract. This happens because the negative charge on the balloon will force some of the electrons in the wall to move to the other side of their atoms. This leaves the surface of the wall closest to the balloon positively charged. The positive surface of the wall and the negative surface of the balloon will attract each other.

SORRY THE OTHER ANSWER WAS INCORRECT. HERE IS THE CORRECT ONE.

Electrons are negative charges, while protons are positive charges. Just like magnets, one side is negative and the other side is positive making it attract with each other. But the wall has neutral charges which is the NEUTRONS. The balloon still has charges when you rubbed it on your hair making it stick to the wall since it has neutrons. :)

The most simple answer is electrons because the balloon still has charges
