At the atomic level, what is meant by saying something is electrically charged?
- When something is electrically charged it means that it has a positive charge.

Why is charged usually transferred by electrons rather that protons?
-The electrons are oppositly charged than the protons.

Why do clothes often cling together after tumbling in a clothes dryer?
-Static was produced (not too sure about this one)

    Electrically charged atoms are called ions. Ions can be positively or negatively charged.

    "Why is charged usually transferred by electrons rather that protons?
    -The electrons are oppositly charged than the protons."

    Electrons are light so electric fields will cause them to move much faster than protons or ions.

    Yes, I think this is correct.

    Friction causes the different fabrics present in the dryer to transfer electrons from one faric type to another. This leaves them oppositely charged with a tendency to cling.

    Acoording to this hypothesis, a load of clothes of the same fabric type would not experience clinging. Sounds like a good experiment.
