GANCI, Alessio and GANCI, Salvatore. Demonstration experiments in electrostatics: low cost devices. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.2, pp.1-14. ISSN 1806-1117. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1806-11172012000200012.
The main purpose of this paper is to provide a set of demonstration experiments in electrostatics. Emphasis is put in regard to the making of apparatuses in order to have useful self-made devices from common materials; obviously some apparatuses need special mechanical skill as a turning operation. All devices are designed in order to have a set of portable experiments.
Keywords : demonstration experiments; electrostatics; home-made devices.
