Using classic equipment (a Faraday Ice Pail and Conductive Spheres), students learn to charge objects by direct contact and by induction. The charge is measured using a high impedance electrometer.

Students explore the distribution of charge on different shaped conductive shapes. A sphere with a hole in it is provided to show that no charge resides on the inner surface of the conductor when it is charged.
