Step 2: Outside part
Tape one end to the foil on the outside, so that the other end can be easily curved around to meet the other wire .
Step 3: Interceptor
And place a round nut just on top.(Make sure it touch the wire too)
Step 4: How it works
Let your leyden jart beside your screen for 5 -10 minutes The electrical static charge will be transfered, positive and negative charges accumulate from the two metal coatings respectively, but they are unable to discharge due to the glass between them. The result is that the charges will hold each other in equilibrium until a discharge path is provided. Leyden jars were first used to store electricity in experiments, and later as a condenser in early wireless equipment.
have fun but be careful it' s not a toy .
