How to make an electroscope at home?
The electroscope can detect even the smallest electrical charge. In this article I will describe how to do at home the electroscope, and will also be provided video tutorials that will help you in doing so. This device works on the law of repulsion of the particles from each other. In our case, these bodies will be pieces of foil or paper petals.
You need to make the electroscope
- Transparent glass vessel (for example — the Bank) with plastic lid
- A piece of wire or a nail
Instructions for use at home
To find out whether our device, it is necessary to bring the copper wire electrified object, for example, a comb, at this time will have to up the petals of foil. The more charge, the stronger they repel each other. Can also be touched by the finger, the petals are also slightly repelled, as through us flows an electric charge.
