PIRA Code(s): 5A22.22 Set up time:3 minutes Operation: First, show the electroscope in resting stage. Then, charge a rod or other material by rubbing the object in a cloth. Place this near the plate of the electroscope and observe the deflection of the needle. To keep the needle deflected, scrape the plate with the charged object. A decrease in deflection occurs when an oppositely charged object is placed near the plate. Physics and Science Concepts: Electrostatics Safety: None
PIRA Code(s): 6A20.45 Set up time:none Operation: Use the different types of mirrors to compare reflection. Physics and Science Concepts: Geometrical Optics, Reflection Safety: Do not shine bright light into mirror.
