Product Details

This Gold Leaf Electroscope is perfect for use in the home lab or classroom to demonstrate the principles of electrostatics. It features a sturdy metal case with front and rear glass windows for preventing air currents from affecting the deflection of the leaves. An electroscope is an early scientific instrument used to detect the presence and magnitude of an electric charge on a body. In fact, it was the first electrical measuring instrument. Leaves are made of gold and aluminum. Leaf support rod is held in place by an insulating plastic sleeve. A graduated scale is also provided for measuring the deflection from 0 to 90 degrees. Includes an activity guide.

  • Detects the presence and magnitude of an electric charge on a body
  • Leaves are gold and aluminum
