A Mobile Phone Faraday Cage
French, M. M. J.
Physics Education, v46 n3 p290-293 May 2011
A Faraday cage is an interesting physical phenomenon where an electromagnetic wave can be excluded from a volume of space by enclosure with an electrically conducting material. The practical application of this in the classroom is to block the signal to a mobile phone by enclosing it in a metal can. The background of the physics behind this is described in some detail, and this is followed by a explanation of some demonstrations and experiments which I have used. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
