Additional Info

  • ID Code: J1-02
  • Purpose: Illustrate triboelectricity.
  • Description: A water jet falls from a reservoir with a nipple and falls into a receptacle can which is electrically connected to an electroscope. The source reservoir is ungrounded and can be shown to be electrically neutral at the beginning of the experiment. The water stream breaks up as it falls, charging the the water droplets falling into the pan, which can be seen from the electroscope.
