1- Electrostatic attraction

Lesson Guide

Electrostatic floating Rings -toy physics = Homemade Science with Bruce Yeany.mp4

Intro - is it magic?

where could this happen ?

Practical

Using coke cans, and plastic rods / cloth - get kids to race coake cans with electrostatic force.

Main practical kids can have a go at bending water, picking up paper etc etc.

Measuring Voltage

Students will grow there circuits cells to see a change in energy with the bulb also will measure the voltage across the circuit:

  • Leads
  • Bulb
  • Voltmeters only
  • 4 x Batteries
