Charge Distribution on Conductor
- Use rod and fur to charge conductors. To
determine charge distribution on conductors use wand and electroscope, or
proof plane and Faraday Ice Pail (right) with electrometer.
- According to theory, no charge should reside
on the inner side of a hollow conductor.
- Conductors: L01, section B1.
- Rod and fur: L01, section A2.
- Wand and proof plane: L01, section A2, plastic
- Faraday Ice Pail: L01, A2.
- Electrometer: L01, A1.
