Introduction: An Electrically Conductive Straw

Here is another electrostatic related experiment I did (hope you enjoy it!). I really like doing Physics experiments and discovering and making new things.

I have mixed some activated charcoal into arabic gum and painted a plastic straw with it. Here I am testing the painted straw with a charged gold leaf electroscope to see if it conducts electric charge.

Step 1: Testing the Straw for Conductivity

That is all for now. Thank you for watching.
