Why should an antistatic wrist strap be worn when working on electronic equipment?
- to prevent interference from clothing and loose jewelry
- to equalize the electrical charge between a person and the equipment
- to prevent clothing made of silk, polyester, or wool from generating a static charge
- to draw static electricity away from a component and transfer it safely from equipment to a grounding point
Explanation:An antistatic wrist strap equalizes the electrical charge between you and the equipment and protects the equipment from electrostatic discharge.
