Electric charge Introduction: In this electric charge lab, we have to use the different material of robs and fur/silk cloth and rubbed together and to see if the charge is transferred from one to the other; also to investigate the characteristics of electric charge. Theory: when we use the different material of robs and fur/silk cloth and rubbed together, in the ends, we use charge sensor to see the different material rob fur/silk cloth have charges of equal magnitude but opposite charge . Magnitude of an electric charge, e. e= 1.60 x 10^-19 (coulomb) Apparatus: 2 rubber robs, glass rob, 2 different plastic robs. 2 pivot stands, fur, silk cloth, faraday cage, Xplorer GXL,Charge sensor, metal rods. Procedure: Part 1: -Suspend each rubber rod horizontally in a pivot stand -Rub each rubber rod with fur, then bring the second rubber rod close to the first rob without touching it. Then carefully bring the second rubber rob close to the first rubber rob -rub the glass rob with silk cloth and bring the glass rob close to the horizontal rubber rod
