Subject: Re: Carpet in physics labs


Maybe not in California but here in Texas, sometimes walking
across a carpeted room creates a lot of static electricity.
Probably not good during the electrostatic experiments
or doing IC experimenting work.
But carpeting sure would help with the noise problem in the lab rooms.
