Unformatted text preview: hollow sphere was charged and a pith ball was suspended near it; in order to determine the electric field inside and near the sphere. Conclusions As it was expected in the first part of the experiment as the electroscope was positively or negatively charged the conducting leaves repelled. This confirmed the theory that like charges repel while unlike charges attract.
