Electrostatic Bells 5B10.30

Bells located in Electrostatics Cabinet, A2.

Toepler-Holtz located in Electrostatics Cabinet, A3.

Discharge Toepler-Holtz generator: grasp insulating handles and put terminals (2cm diameter metal balls) in contact with each other.

Connect bells to Toepler-Holtz.

Separate terminals by 5 cm.

Crank Toepler-Holtz generator (there should be no spark between terminals). Bells should start to ring.

Discharge Toepler-Holtz generator--you will likely see a fat spark between the two terminals as you do this. Do not put your hands near the terminals before you discharge them--the spark from the Toepler-Holtz can be painful.
