It may contain small parts that canbe choking hazards. Adult supervisionis required.Maintenance:For best results, maintain these kitmaterials between each use.1. Protect insulating materials fromsalt spray, chemical flames and perspi ration. They coat them with a film ofmoisture which conducts away elec triccharges, affecting your ex periments.You can remove any moisture filmbuildup with a rinse of distilled water.2. Your experiments are BEST performed in a dry room. Avoid handlingthe material with moist hands.3. At high humidities (over 80%),lint strands may cause short circuitsor act as discharge points. If using anelec trophorus, note that damp lint diminishes the potential of metal surfacesand makes them less effective.

2007 - v 4/15Rods and ClothNeon LampProof PlaneElectrophorusWhat is static electricity?ConductiveBallPith Ball,suspendedMounted PointStand for CageFaraday Cage,point, coversIce PailAll matter is formed from positively charged nuclei and negativelycharged electrons. A body with possessequal numbers of positive and negativecharges is electrically neutral.A body which more negativelycharged electrons than positive chargesto complement them is electrically negative. A body with fewer negative chargesthan positive would be termed positivesince positive charges predominate.Except under rare circumstances, onlythe electrons flow. They flow away froma negative charge and toward a positivecharge.How does static electricitydiffer from currentelectricity?Static electricity resembles waterin a lake, current electricity resembleswater in a river. Provide a channel anda lake will flow as much as the channel permits and as long as the supplylasts.Static means to stand still. Staticelectricity is an electric charge whichremains stationary. Provide a channelfor its flow and it can become currentelectricity.Experiment 1:Friction GeneratesElectrical ChargesAdditional Items Needed: Lightweight materials(Paper, straw, feathers etc.)Kit Components Needed: Friction rods Friction surfacesFigure 1Procedure:1. Choose a friction road and surface(for example, acrylic rod andacetate cloth.)2. Cut out small bits of lightweightpaper (or straw, packing material,feathers etc.) and spread them onthe table.3. Hold one end of rod and rub theother end with fabric. (Figure 1)4. Bring rubbed end close to thematerial on the table.5. Watch the bits fly and stick to therod!

2007 - v 4/15Discussion:Why do rubbed rods behave thisway? Because the rods become chargedby friction and attract lightweight material electrostatically. See Experiment 3.How do the rods become charged?All matter has a fraction of its electronsin a relatively loosely held state. Whenbodies touch each other or come intoclose contact by rubbing, the surfaceelectrons from one body “get loose” andmove to the other surface. The bodies areno longer neutral; the one which gainselectrons is “negatively charged” andthe other body which has lost electronsis positively charged.Different materials have different affinities for gaining or losingelectrons. Silk gains electrons whenrubbed against glass and leaves it positively charged. Fur, flannel and woollose electrons and charge amber or hardrubber negatively.Frictional generation of electriccharges was how electricity was accidentally discovered by the ancientGreek philosopher Thales 25 centuriesago. He observed that amber (Elektron inGreek) attracted light material like strawand feathers after being rubbed with fur.He thought amber (electron) was lost inthe fur, but today we know that amberdraws electrons from the fur to becomenegatively charged.In generating electric charges, friction does not create more electrons.Electrons simply move between surfaces,keeping their total number the same.Electrons get redistributed and are notcreated or destroyed.Figure 2 -Attracting an Uncharged Body.Why does the rod attract the ball eventhough the ball is not charged? Thenegatively charged side, being closer to therod, is attracted by the rod more stronglythan the positive side of the ball is repelledby it.Experiment 2:Charged Bodies Can BeDischargedThe “shock” you get when touchinga doorknob or car door is because theseobjects are discharging the built-upcharge through you.Spark is discharge through ionizedair.Additional Items Needed:Experiment 3: Rods Pieces of paper, straw Metal surfaceLike Charges Repel;Unlike Charges AttractKit Components Needed: Friction rods Friction surfacesProcedure:1. Take the charged rod, touch withyour finger or to a metal surface (i.e.door knob.)2. Carry the rod to pieces of paper(or straw, feather etc.) as before. Usenew pieces of paper for best results!3. The rod now cannot pick up material. It has lost its charge.4. Compare cases using differentcombinations of rods and surfaces.In particular, use a positively chargedrod (glass rubbed against silk) and anegatively charged rod (acrylic rubbedagainst wool or fur.)5. Both kinds of charges can beremoved by discharging.Discussion:In charging, there is redistributionof electrons between two bodies so oneis positive while the other is negative.Discharging involves redistribution ofelectrons in which the charged bodiesbecome neutral.During discharge, electrons movebetween bodies through a transportingmedium. They use your body or doorknob to be transported - to the groundif your rod is negatively charged, orfrom the ground if positive.Certain substances are better transporters or conductors of electrons thanothers. Metals are good conductors. Therods and surfaces in these experimentsare not. They are insulators.There is electrostatic cling fromfriction when you rub against car seats,walk with shoes on carpets or in clotheswhen they rub against each other in adryer.Kit Components Needed: Charged RodsFishlineStandPith Balls(Procedure 3)Graphite Ball (Procedure 4)Electrophorus (Procedure 4)Procedure 1:1.

You can actually keep the ball going back and forth between the two!Procedure 4:Show the same effects as in Procedure 2 by using the conductive ballinstead of the pith ball and an electrophorus in place of charged rods.

(Uncharge pith ball bytouching it with fingers or wall beforeyou iscussion:This demonstrates several electrostatic properties. Attraction takes placebetween opposite charges and repulsionbetween like charges, as in Procedure1. The forces of attraction/repulsioncome from the electric field surroundingcharges (Fig. 7.)If an isolated electron is in the field,it would move towards the positive pole(charge concentration) and away fromthe negative pole.pith ball reorient themselves such thattheir electrons are closest to the positive end of the charged body (Fig. 8).In doing so they acquire the oppositeFigure 8charge.Subsequent to induction, there isattraction (between pith ball and rod)due to opposite polarity between them.When they touch, there is direct transferof electrons by conduction. The twobodies face each other with like chargesand therefore repel.

2007 - v 4/15MetalPlateAFigure 95. Cut out a paper piece in someshape (the number “8”, for example)and tape to the surface of the acrylicplate. Since the plate does not getcharged in the parts covered by thepaper figure, the pepper is finally attracted and held to the parts coveredby the figure.Discussion:This illustrates the principle of thephotocopier machine, where toner dustis attracted to the surface of a sheetof paper by electrostatic attractionand fixed by heating. Other examplesinclude: the filtering in air pollutiondevices; the illumination of TV monitor screens.To charge an electroscope:BCFigure 9 - An Electrophorus. A) Ametal plate lying on a negativelycharged surface. Electrons arerepelled to the upper surface of theplate. B) When you touch the plate, theelectrons escape from it. C) Lift thepositively charged plate. Bring yourfinger near it. You will get a spark.Experiment 5:Storing and TransferringElectrostatic Charges Electrophorus andProof PlaneKit Components Needed: Electrophorus Acrylic plate Neon lamp (optional)Procedure:Charge an electrophorus as in Fig 9.1. Rub plate with polyethylene soplate acquires negative charge. Placeflat on table.2. Holding electrophorus by handle,bring disc close to acrylic plate. Byinduction, the top acquires negativecharge (electrons reorient and aredriven to the top).3. Touch the top with a finger todischarge as electrons flow throughyour body.(See Figure 10.)Note: An electroscope detects andidentifies electrical charges. Presenceof charge makes its vanes diverge(due to similar charges acquired byboth). In the absence of charge, thevanes remain neutral and collapse.Note: You can show the discharge byusing the neon bulb. Hold one leadwith your finger and touch the disc topwith the other lead; the bulb will glowto show there is a charge flowing.4. Remove your finger. The dischas a net positive charge (fewer electrons.)5. Pull away disc from plate, holding it by handle.The electrophorus is positivelycharged.Note: You can place the disc onthe charged insulator plate in Steps2, 3 and 4. Contact is only at a fewmicroscopic projections to which theinsulator does not conduct electrons.Electrons on the insulator leak away.6. Transfer charges for different purposes from the “reservoir” of positivecharges built up in the electrophorus.Use a proof plane or transfer ball tocharge an electroscope Touch proof plane ball to disc. Itacquires a positive charge bycontact (conduction.) Move proof plane to electroscopeand touch ball to terminal. Vanes diverge due to the deposit ofpositive charge. You have used the proof plane totransfer positive charges. Can ittransport negative charges? Discharge proof plane by grounding it. Repeat with negativecharges. At first, the vanescollapse. Bring more charges, theydiverge. Why?Discussion:Figures 10 and 11 show the chargingof the electroscope with both positiveand negative charges done by conduction. The initial collapse of vanes is dueto neutralization of vanes by the negative charges you are depositing. Thesubsequent deposit of negative chargeswill make the vanes diverge becauselike charges were acquired.The proof plane in the experimentis physically transporting electrostaticcharges or static electricity.Static vs current electricity Anelectric current (or flow of electrons)along a conductor can be generatedby a perpendicularly moving magneticfield. Think of current electricity as theflowing water of a river, the generatorsas the water pumps and the wires as thewater pipes. By contrast, static electricity (that is, stationary charges) is likewater in a lake. Provide a channel andelectrostatic charges can also flow andbecome current electricity.Static electricity can be generatedusing mechanical means. Electrostaticcharges can be carried and moved aselectrons adhere to matter and go withthem.
