Electrostatics with Computer-Interfaced Charge Sensors
Morse, Robert A.
Physics Teacher, v44 n8 p498-503 Nov 2006
Computer interfaced electrostatic charge sensors allow both qualitative and quantitative measurements of electrostatic charge but are quite sensitive to charges accumulating on modern synthetic materials. They need to be used with care so that students can correctly interpret their measurements. This paper describes the operation of the sensors, precautions for using them, and suggestions for experiments with sample readings.
