Product Details

Static Electricity Kit - Friction Rod Set
by GSC International

Friction rods are used in conjunction with a friction pad (made of wool, flannel, silk, or fur) to produce static charges. Typically, friction rods are used in the physics classroom and laboratory to demonstrate the principles associated with static electricity. The rod is rubbed against the friction pad with one material giving up electrons (and becoming positive) while the other acquires the electrons (becoming negative. Because of the simplicity of this experiment, it is a frequently used demonstration in both high school and college physics courses.

This set of friction rods and accessories are an ideal way to demonstrate static electricity within the classroom. It comes complete with the following items:

1x Hollow glass friction rod (11.25" long)
1x Solid glass friction rod (12" long)
1x Half ground/solid friction rod (12" long)
1x Ebonite friction rod (11.75" long)
1x Wool pad
1x Silk pad
2x Balloons
1x String (~10 feet)
1x Instruction sheet
