Grade 11College. Collect charge by friction and induction on conductors and insulators. Transfer charge with an electrophorus and measure charge with an electroscope as you investigate all phenomena of static electricity, such as Coulomb’s law and the triboelectric effect. An analytical balance and assorted conductors and insulators are needed but not supplied. Includes instructions. Suitable for 1 group of students.
Grade 11College. The Carolina™ Electrostatic Physics Kit comes with 26 components, including an electroscope, pith balls, and various rods needed to investigate core concepts in introductory electrostatics. Kit has enough materials for 1 group of 2 to 4 students to perform all the activities. Kit components come in a metal ballistics case with high-density foam inserts for easy storage and long life. Needed but not supplied materials include an analytical balance and assorted conductors and insulators.
With this kit students can explore common experiments such as The Gold Leaf Electroscope, Positive and Negative Charges, Insulators and Conductors, and Coulomb’s Law. The included experiment guide covers 11 activities:
