Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They will repel.......In case if you do want an explanation then..... The charge transfers takes place due to "potential difference" between the silk and amber.Since we do not know value of exact potential differences ,we cannot justify the charges on silk as well as on amber.But through little efforts like using an "Electroscope" we can really justify charges on mark.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The result is silk & amber have opposite charges. However I'm little unsure about question's language.. I wanna ask whether you rubbed the 2 pieces of silk consecutively to a amber rod or you just rubbed it independently to different amber rods.
