An Absolute Electrometer for the Physics Laboratory
Straulino, S.; Cartacci, A.
Physics Education, v44 n3 p301-305 May 2009
A low-cost, easy-to-use absolute electrometer is presented: two thin metallic plates and an electronic balance, usually available in a laboratory, are used. We report on the very good performance of the device that allows precise measurements of the force acting between two charged plates. (Contains 5 footnotes, 2 tables, and 6 figures.)
