Product Details

Electroscope Pith Ball Electric Charge Demo
 
Pith balls are used in electrostatic experimentation to determine the existence of electrostatic charges.  These can be brought between two charged capacitors such as a parallel plate capacitor, and they will "dance" quickly between the 2, demonstraiting that they take on the charge of a capacitor and then are quickly pushed away when their charge is the same.   This simple and effective teaching device consists of an insulated brass pillar and hook on a base.  It is supplied with two colored pith balls for effective viewing.  Simply screw on the brass pillar to the base, and you are ready to experiment.  Spare set of pith balls available on another listing.
 
 
 
Ages 8 and up.
