Experiments with Charge Indicator Based on Bipolar Transistors
Dvorak, Leos; Planinsic, Gorazd
Physics Education, v47 n6 p721-727 Nov 2012
A simple charge indicator with bipolar transistors described recently enables us to perform a number of experiments suitable for high-school physics. Several such experiments are presented and discussed in this paper as well as some features of the indicator important for its use in schools, namely its sensitivity and robustness, i.e. the capability to withstand various potentially harmful conditions. (Contains 8 figures and 3 footnotes.)
