If you rub a piece of PVC pipe with some wool and touch the PVC to Aluminum foil. Will the PVC be charged after rubbing it with wool?? Will the aluminum be charged? Finally can the PVC cause the aluminum to move. Please explain (hint: can the PVC give charge to the aluminum?)

i know the pvc will be charged through friction. i know the aluminum will be charged because it is transferred from the pvc. but i am not sure if the pvc can cause the aluminum to move.

    I have never been able to do it.
