ID Code: J1-24
Purpose: Demonstrates electrostatic repulsion
Description: While standing on a large styrofoam insulating block, touch your hands to the top of the Van de Graaff dome, then have someone turn it on. The fact that your hair stands on end is a result of the repulsion between charges of the same sign that collect on your hair.
Availability: Available

If you don't want to use your own hair, consider trying the streamers from J3-08 VAN DE GRAAFFS - INTERACTING FIELDS.

Or check out J1-25 VAN DE GRAAFF - TRAINED RABBIT, for another hare-raising experiment.
