The negative potential over the rods causes the total charge as follows, when the geometry is considered as a cylindrical capacitor
To develop the fiber, the researchers roll conducting and insulating polymer films around a copper wire to create a 2 cm-wide cylindrical capacitor. The cylinder is heated to 200"C and stretched until it is a soft elastic fiber 0.9 mm in diameter.
These changes meant that one of the large cylindrical capacitors on the main board also had to be moved.
