As exciting as our Van de Graaff Generator!
Produce a higher current with lower voltage! Produce static electric charges and discharges with our Wimshurst Machine. Use the hand crank to rotate the plates in opposite directions. The close proximity of the plates will produce a substantial charge which is then deposited and stored in the Leyden Jar capacitors. Your students can create a high voltage, yet modest, and therefore safe, current source. Mounted on insulated wooden base.
