J3-06 ELLIPSOIDAL CONDUCTOR

Additional Info

  • ID Code: J3-06
  • 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.
  • Availability: Available
  • Loc codes: J3b, J1b
