English term or phrase: lo suficiente hasta provocar una descarga saltando un arco entre ambos cuerpos
Static electricity is generated by moving liquids, gases, or solids. It builds up on objects until another object comes close enough for the charge to arc or jump across. For example, when you walk across a nylon carpet, static electricity accumulates on your body. When your hand comes close to a door knob, the static electricity jumps to the door knob and causes a spark. This spark can serve as an ignition source.

La electricidad estática se genera moviendo líquidos, gases, o sólidos. Ésta se desarrolla sobre los objetos hasta que otro objeto se acerca lo suficiente hasta provocar una descarga saltando un arco entre ambos cuerpos

"sparking BETWEEN the bodies", of course! Not "sparking forming".
