- Our electroscope is useful for physics teachers to illustrate electrostatic principles of charging and charge interactions.
- Students can understand how an electroscope behaves as a charge-detecting device.
- The electroscope is made up of sheet metal walls that are attached to a plastic base.
- The front glass window slides up to allow for the insertion of ionizing material in the chamber.
- The light-weight metal vane which rests upon a support stand is free to rotate about its pivot and is used as a pointer in the electroscope.
- This light weight metal blade deflects when the electroscope plate is charged.
- Therefore, by observing any deflection of the needle, the presence of charge in either the electroscope or a nearby object can be determined.
- Our electroscope comes with two accessories: an electrophorus disc and a spherical electrode.
