Purpose:Demonstrates that charge distribution on a conductor depends on the surface curvature
Description:The ellipsoidal conductor is charged, either positive or negative, using a charged rod from J1-01. Simultaneously touch proof planes to the larger and the smaller ends of the figure, and then to the corresponding electroscope. A few transfers show that there is more charge on the smaller end than on the larger end.
Loc codes:J3b, J1b
